We could start comparing with biblegateway and unbound bible to see if
they share the same problems, if not, we could correct the module based on
their text. If the problems are also there, and the public domain text of
this passages was lost, we can use the microfilm images of public domain
Almeida's that are available on the internet. On the site
http://faithofgod.org/Portuguese/1911/ there are the microfilmed images
from the portuguese "Almeida Revista e Corrigida", from 1911, undoubtedly
