This is correct and is not a module bug, the RSV does
not follow the standard verse numbering (i.e. the KJV
verse numbering) rather it follows the more supported
Jewish numbering scheme.  The Psalms, in Hebrew do not
have 'titles' since they are a form of oral poetry,
their beginning is a title. As regards sword, this
poses a problem (most obvious in Malachi 4:6), since
Sword adopts the more universal KJV numbering...
