The whole nt is one line per verse or verse per line, vpl. There exists
vpl2mod program which should be able to convert that kind of text
into a module. I haven't used it and don't know any more about it.

\par is rft formatting, it's a newline (in poems etc.). {\i seems to be
quotation from Old Testament. If the quotation ends with the end of the
line then there is no }, otherwise there is }. It's not diffcult to find
out the meanings of these formatting characters, just look where they
are used - I did it in half a minute without knowing any Spanish.

The text encoding is iso-8859-1. Check that your editor uses it.

A module needs a configuration file, read
