17.4b(3) Condensing biblical citations when book name is abbreviated.

When the name of the biblical book is abbreviated, the same rules apply except that the print abbreviation is used followed immediately by the chapter and verse numbers—each with a number sign and no intervening space. Do not divide the abbreviated book name and following numbers between lines. Examples:

Heb. VI 9 [or] Heb. 6:9

Heb. 6:9 –11

II Cor. 2:12

When a colon and multiple verse numbers separated by commas follow a chapter number, the commas are retained in braille. Example:

Timothy 3:2, 3, 4, 6
