Expand and Copy Bible Verses

I was thinking years ago there was a bible verse extension for PopClip but my searches within the Forum and through the extension list is not showing up with anything.

I found an old git here: PopClipExt/popclipBible-local.popclipext at master · raguay/PopClipExt · GitHub

And was able to get it running by downloading all the files and putting them into a folder with a popclipext extension then compressing the folder with an popclipextz extension and it works but it’s also a version of the Bible I don’t use that often and would be great to have an option or setting to have the completed version of a verse appear above the highlighted text.

Primarily looking for ESV or NASB in addition to KJV / NKJV.

Would also be great just to see what others have come up with.

For just searching one of your sites you can build a simple snippet using the examples on Snippets — PopClip Developer.

If you want to select a reference and PopClip should get the whole verse in the background and put it on the clipboard, you need some platform that provides an API.

Instead of an API, you can probably just hack a URL Scheme like this: https://www.biblestudytools.com/nkjv/acts/passage/?q=acts+18:9-10

Looks like there are several Bible API’s out there might come in handy for this

One I found is:

Looks pretty simple, e.g.



  "verse": "16",
  "text": "¶ For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

The main “trick” will with this api be processing the text input into the correct URL.
