another is more prevalent.

So it's quite feasible to have a system that maps to the KJV as follows:
a -> a
b-> c
c-> b

where a, b, c is the normal order in each of the books. As a result, we
can't simply iterate through them sequentially downwards.

(yes, the example is simplified as keys can map to multiple other keys,
