Chapter and verse

The way our Bibles are split into sections can significantly affect how we read Scripture. But where did these divisions come from and how long have they been there?

Dr Peter J Williams

He who reads in the Torah should read no fewer than three verses. He may not read to the translator more than a single verse and, in the case of the prophetic lection, three.
— translation Jacob Neusner
