This text meets the Permissions notice of the ESV® Bible (The Holy Bible, English Standard Version®), copyright © 2001 by Crossway, listed on the copyright and permissions page of every ESV® Bible (The Holy Bible, English Standard Version®).

There are less than one thousand (1,000) verses inclusive in the online and free version (Ebooks) of this publication.  The commercial publication has all required permissions (pending at this time).

All Scripture quotations are marked with their appropriate version designation where possible.  The ESV designation will usually appear after the scripture designation, to provide an ease of reading, and immediate reference to the version being cited.  This allows for instantaneous recognition of the scriptural text.  

Partial Scripture quotations may not be distinguishable with regards to version.  In such cases, there may be no version designation.

Every effort has been made to properly designate each Scripture quotation as thoroughly and accurately as possible.  Any errors in this regards are purely accidental, and shall be construed as such.

It should be noted that there will be additional versions of the Bible utilized in this publication, as linguistic comparison is essential to all detailed study of the Bible.  All references to version of the Bible aside from the English Standard Version and the King James Version likewise fall within the accepted fair use standards.

Special thanks goes to BibleGateway.  This is a tremendous resource for any student of the Bible.  This site provides invaluable assistance through readily available versions of the Holy Bible in an easy to access format.

BibleGateway was used as a ready-at-hand quick reference when I needed to jump from scripture to scripture at-will.
