Good now I know what to check.

Cool! This was something I *wanted* to see.. I've reached a milestone ;-).
FWIW, I am using Bible.NJB instead of Bible.KJV

While comparing in parallel with the DRC Bible I noticed I have some longer
verses.. due to the a, b .. and even f subversioning. I will make them coincide
with the DRC by adding b, c, .. whatever subverses. This is something where
using OSIS will make a difference: just like the Deuterocanonicals they won't
be seen in the module nowadays but they will be there for the day when/if sword
supports them.
