As already said in a question Jews and Gentiles versify the Tanakh (i.e., assign its chapters and verses) quite a bit different. I have been trying to find an exhaustive list of the verses that differ between the Jewish translations and the KJV.

Could somebody give the list or at least a link where the differing verses/chapters are exhaustively enumerated? Thanks, I have been looking for it for a while.

Note: To avoid confusion. I am not asking for the difference in the books' order, but the differences in verse/chapter in the same books.


I have been working on some software which converts between different versification systems. As part of that, I have a file listing the various differences: transformations.data. There is no single "Jewish" translation, but I currently have included the NJPS. The JPS or Masoretic text probably have some differences elsewhere.

There is also a long JSON file detailing all the versification differences I'm aware of. I believe that "he_wlc" is the Leningrad codex, the source text of the standard BHS edition.

See also my page on Versification systems resources.

  • +1 Hey Danni, thanks a lot, this is already something to begin with. Although I have hardly worked with Java. I still hope for somebody to post a nice list of the verses that differ as intervals. :) PS: Yes, you are right there is no "single" Jewish version. Jun 5 '16 at 15:54
  • It's Javascript not Java, and actually the transformations.data file is a nice human readable list of verses.
