Bible Gateway Ref Tag Tool

Bible Gateway Reference Tagging Tool

What is it?

Using the code provided, transform all plain-text Scripture references on a webpage into hyperlinks to the appropriate Bible passage from BibleGateway.com. When you hover the mouse pointer over the hyperlinked text, the text of the Bible passage appears in a pop-over window, allowing the visitor to view the passage without leaving the current web page. Inside the pop-over window are links to view the passage on BibleGateway.com as well.

  • Jeremiah 29:11
  • Rom 8:28
  • Prov 3:5-6
  • 1 Corinthians 13:1-13

Save yourself the trouble of manually entering book, chapter, and verse references every time you want to cite Scripture!

How it works

Simply copy and paste the Javascript code from the box below into your site. We recommend pasting it at the end of each page on which you want the reference tagging to function, just before the </body> tag.


  • BGLinks.apocrypha (default false). Set to true to find references to books in the Apocrypha.
  • BGLinks.clickTooltip (default false). Set to true to show the tooltip when clicking the link rather than when hovering over it.
  • BGLinks.showTooltips (default true). Set to false to add links to Bible Gateway without any tooltip functionality.

Instructions to Link to Bible Gateway Verses

Linking Bible verses to BibleGateway.com: If you use WordPress as your blog platform, you may want to use the independently developed WordPress plugins “Scripturizer” (http://wordpress.org/plugins/scripturizer/) or “BibleGateway Links Shortcode” (http://wordpress.org/plugins/biblegateway-links-shortcode/) to link the Bible verses you use on your blog to their locations on BibleGateway.com, as per the BG² agreement.

Available for you to use on your blog is the Bible Gateway Bible Reference Tagging Tool (see above). This is a way for you to link back to Bible Gateway’s verses. Or manually link the references/verses you include in your posts. Here are the instructions:

  1. When you write within a blogpost a Bible reference (e.g., John 3:16) or a passage (e.g., John 3: 1-16) or a grouping (e.g., John 3: 1, 15-17, 19), open a new browser tab or window and go to https://BibleGateway.com.
  2. On the top of our homepage, select your preferred Bible translation from the dropdown version box.
  3. Go back to your blogpost and copy the reference or passage or grouping as the examples above show.
  4. Go back to BibleGateway.com and paste what you’ve copied into the search box to the left of the version box.
  5. Click the Search button.
  6. The resulting page will display the verses for the Bible reference you pasted. Go up to the top URL browser bar; highlight and copy the URL.
  7. Go back to your blogpost. Highlight the text you want to link. Click your blog’s editing function that inserts links into your blogpost and paste the BibleGateway.com Bible reference search result URL into it.
