Aside from the Bibles Michael Paul Johnson linked to (the OSIS ones 
anyway), you can find a number of good XML Bibles & biblical material at 
the following:


Or you can use CrossWire's mod2osis utility to convert Sword modules to 
rough OSIS XML documents.

Importantly, you should try to use the OSIS format since it is the only 
well-developed XML Bible format with any degree of acceptance.  XSEM 
(which Michael mentioned) helped the development of OSIS significantly, 
but is no longer advocated by anyone and really has no content other 
than Michael's.  The Zefania format is not really able to encode the 
complexity of Bibles and isn't advocated by anyone but its own developers.
