Answer

The Chicago Manual of Style Online gives details for citing the Bible in chapters 14.252-255. According to CMS: "References to Jewish or Christian scripture are usually cited in notes, not bibliographies. Parenthetical or note references to the Bible should include book (in roman and usually abbreviated), chapter, and versenever a page number. A colon is used between chapter and verse. Note that the traditional abbreviations use periods but the shorter forms do not. For guidance on when to abbreviate and when not to, see 10.46. For full forms and abbreviations, see 10.48, 10.49, 10.50."
