      You may use quotes.  It would probably be wise to indicate which bible is being used.

      Be aware, though, that a hub with little but quotations will be judged as duplicate (and be unpublished), and rightly so.  It is the same words that are all over the web.

      When doing any quoting I would suggest that you always give the source.  Also, be sure that your original text is enough to offset the quoted material to keep you from being hit with the duplicate filter.  I have occasionally used "stats" for a particular subject, but have always included a high percentage of original material as well within the hub.

    I was about to create a hub on best Steve Jobs quotes and before doing so I wanted to see what the expert would say, because it would charge me the duplicate content penalty. SO I now know that the danger is there and I decided not to publish that hub.
