Chris is the expert on this.  As I understand it, the two main schemes 
in use are the LXX versification and the kjv with and without apocrypha. 
  The only other significant one is the Coptic scheme.  However there 
are a number of minor variations out there as far as I know.  Chris will 
no doubt tell me where I have misunderstood this :-)

Catholic bibles follow LXX and protestant bibles follow kjv ....  at 
least that's how it is with the bibles on my shelves.

God bless,
