Is it ok to quote scripture from the bible? And if so do we hv to put the bible name crediting the specific bible used? Thanks
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Be aware, though, that a hub with little but quotations will be judged as duplicate (and be unpublished), and rightly so.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.

Does anyone know what percentage of a hub can be "duplicate content"? I have a hub that was unpublished because it had a lot of statistics on it...so I am wondering if I can add content to make it ok?

When quoting from the Bible to clarify a point, or to prove a point, why is it considered DUPLICATING someone else's work? All writers that use the Bible MUST quote from the Bible, to make and prove their point!I MUST...
