I’m going to be making a lot of references to things in my posts. Here on this page, I tell what those references are.

This page will change as often as needed, to accommodate changes in my writing or repeated references.

Bible Text

Unless otherwise stated, all scripture quotations are taken from the New American Standard Bible, Revised Edition. (Disclaimer: As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases:)

Linked Scripture quotations link the web page where they came from. The version I use from there will usually be New American Standard Bible. Two common entities I link to are Bible Gateway and Blue Letter Bible.


If I use an abbreviation, acronym, or initialism, the first time I use it on a page, I will include the spelled-out version. For example, if I use SONAR, I will write it as “Sound Navigation and Ranging (SONAR)”.

I will frequently do this with abbreviations (etc.) that I’ve made up. For instance, I use WordPress as the content manager for this blog site. I use “WP” to indicate “WordPress”.
