Well, you have 2 options for non-KJV versification.
1) make the module in its own versification scheme, and where there isn't
a 'KJV slot' for an entry, concatenate these entries into the last valid
KJV entry. This is what our utilities attempt to do with any entries
that you have in your import files that don't align with a KJV entry.
2) use our General Book Format to create the module as a general book,
and not a 'Bible'. You can use whatever heirarchical reference system
you desire for general books. An example of a Bible in a gbs import
file would be something like:
In the beginning...
And the earth was without form
Hope this helps.

This is an English translation of the Psalter as found in the LXX and is a standard in Eastern Orthodoxy--the LXX is the canonical OT scriptures of Orthodoxy. I've noted, however, that non-KJV Versifications are not currently supported. Is there any way around this, or will I need to wait on this project until 1.7/2.0 is available?
