If you had a legitimate license for the life application bible as a
Sword resource, you would also have the text in electronic format from
the copyright holder to use as your source. You would not be scraping

You also realize that they nearly lost their right to have any Bibles
on their site, because of webscraping.

The license you refer to, applies only to their original content.  It
does not apply to content whose copyright is held by other
