Versification systems in Sword come in two varieties. One type is based
on a single translation or manuscript (e.g. Leningrad, NRSVA, Luther, &
KJV). The other is designed to fit a maximal set of verses that appear
within closely related translations or versification systems (e.g. Vulg,
Catholic, & Catholic2).
The Synodal v11n system is of the former type, but was supplemented by
the addition of Ps 114:9 when it was pointed out that some RSBs do
contain a Ps 114:9. (None of the exemplar texts used to generate the
Synodal v11n in 1.6.1 evidence this verse, but it was confirmed in a
I checked the three verses you identify, and they do not appear in any
of the texts we used to create the original 1.6.1 version of Synodal. I
don't have a printed RSB in my possession, and won't have the
opportunity to check one for a few weeks. To consider their addition, we
would need confirmation that these verses exist in this reference system.
Looking at these three verses, though, I note that (in contrast to Ps
114:9) they are all present in the KJV versification, so I'm obliged to
wonder whether the "clean Synodal OSIS file" you are using hasn't
already been re-versified to the KJV v11n. Are all of the other verse
slots filled with textual content (as reported by emptyvss, for example)?
