Sometimes the translators feel that the verse ordering in the original
is incorrect or just doesn't make sense. Thus they will reorder their
verses in the translation but keep the verse numbers of the "original"
text. Thus you will have scenarios just like your example.
Also, at leaston translation I know of has at least 2 concurrent
versing schemes simultaneously. The Jerusalem bible has passages where
it will have a KJV like scheme as well as the LXX scheme. I presume
Sword can't handle that situation.
