Actually a very interesting question. Not because of a game of sorts figuring out the smallest verse, but because it brings us to examine and hopefully understand something about translations and versions. Are you asking about letter count in Greek or Hebrew or King James or Latin Vulgate? Vietnamese translation is very different and I understand they have Native American versions as well.
And when you get into that you see that some versions actually have numbered verses differently.
I could be wrong as I did not review or research here but I think that our English version friends will always say "Jesus wept", but perhaps that is actually longer than others in Greek. But not sure about JW versions.
So the answer to your question is a question. What version and what language?
Do you see why "HE'S weeping?"
MY GOD! No matter how many characters used in Hebrew and/or Greek, if it means "Jesus Wept" in English, that's the smallest verse.
Logic/reasoning/education, etc KILLS as JESUS continues to "weep!"

Hi honey Norine, you are nuttier than a fruit case. You are worthless to God as you speak hate and know not love. You are sick and probably irredeemable, but me and my people follow love which you to not know.
WORD is "nutty" to Satan!
Heb 12:6;8 "For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, & scourgeth every son whom he recv. But if w/o chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then ye are BASTARDS, & not sons."
Can't take it? Guess what GOD calls y
The shortest verse is "Jesus wept." Is that what you mean by smallest?
