How to Cite the Bible - MLA

For your Works Cited page:

The Bible

Italicize “The Bible” and follow it with the version you are using. Remember that your in-text (parenthetical citation) should include the name of the specific edition of the Bible, followed by an abbreviation of the book, the chapter and verse(s). (See Citing the Bible at In-Text Citations: The Basics.)

Examples:

The Bible. Authorized King James Version, Oxford UP, 1998.

 The Bible. The New Oxford Annotated Version, 3rd ed., Oxford UP, 2001.

 The New Jerusalem Bible. Edited by Susan Jones, Doubleday, 1985. 

Citing the Bible - In-Text Citations

In your first parenthetical citation, you want to make clear which Bible you're using (and underline or italicize the title), as each version varies in its translation, followed by book (do not italicize or underline), chapter and verse. For example:

Ezekiel saw "what seemed to be four living creatures," each with faces of a man, a lion, an ox, and an eagle (New Jerusalem Bible, Ezek. 1.5-10).

If future references employ the same edition of the Bible you’re using, list only the book, chapter, and verse in the parenthetical citation.
