The JSON file format?

07 August 2020 - 01:00 PM


There is a great json resource of a Bible with cross-references (long out of copyright):
the "Self-Interpreting Bible" by John Brown of Haddington,
which is also titled as the "Westminster Reference Bible" by the json author.
(The json file being available on Github here: https://github.com/h...reference-bible)
(The json file actually being put to use is online here: https://reformedstandards.com/bible)

Is it possible to convert the json file into a theWord friendly format, as a commentary or even as a book? Or am I in no man's land here?

Simple Bible Reader 3 does not seem to be of any help with this.
And I've only come across someone suggesting a Python script (I'm already lost by now) for converting json to sqlite, yet that is for individual json Bibles, and I have no idea how it would handle or mangle the cross-references within it.
I've tried the beast known as e-Sword's ToolTip before, and would be willing to try that again if applicable.
