The ESV Bible Blog (English Standard Version of the Bible) has announced
It promises “Simple, short links to your favorite scripture passages in the ESV Bible”.

Here’s the blurb from the blog:

We have developed a URL shortening service for the ESV Bible:

URL shorteners simply convert long addresses into shorter ones (helpful for Twitter, for example, where character count is important). Bookmark to quickly generate shortened URLs for the ESV Online.

The great thing about, however, is that by remembering a few simple, logical rules (detailed on the site) you can create the link yourself without having to use the generator.

For example: If you wanted to read Matthew 5 online you could visit and search for Matthew 5 or you could you could use the service’s easy-to-remember format and simply type “″ into your web browser to navigate directly there. Likewise, to shorten a link in a tweet you could either visit and type “Matthew 5″ into the generator or simply use “″.

We hope you find helpful!

At the page there is an address generator along with an explanation of the rules for creating addresses yourself. For example typing into your browser’s navigation bar will take you to that passage in the online ESV. You can use this if you want to insert a Bible reference into an online message or post a reference on Facebook or Twitter.
