Why can't I find a scripture verse cited in The Word Among Us?

Why can’t I find a Bible chapter or verse cited in The Word Among Us?

Most likely it’s because you are using some edition of the Bible other than the New American Bible (NAB). All citations used in The Word Among Us are from the NAB. The NAB is a Catholic Bible that includes 7 more Old Testament books than the Protestant Bible (Baruch, Sirach, Judith, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobit and Wisdom), as well as some additional passages in other biblical books that aren’t in Protestant editions. Variations also exist in the numbering of some of the verses, particularly in the Psalms and the Book of Daniel.
