4. Type the chapter number, followed by a space, and the verse number. For example, jn 3 16.

5. Press ENTER.

A hint: while holding the ALT key press one of the top-row keys to enter numbers (see the illustration above). So, Alt+q=1, Alt+w=2, Alt+e=3, Alt+r=4, Alt+t=5, Alt+y=6, Alt+u=7, Alt+i=8, Alt+o=9, Alt+p=0.

• To open the table of contents, press the MENU key, select “Go to. . .” and then “table of contents.” While there, select the text you want to read with the cursor (use the 5-way controller to move the cursor) and press ENTER.

A hint: an underlined superscript number, word, phrase, is, in most cases, a hyperlink that you can click to move to the linked text. To return to the initial position after following a hyperlink, press the BACK key.

• With the Bible open and no cursor appearing on the screen, press the 5-way controller (see the illustration below) right or left to move to the next (right) or previous (left) chapter. If you see the title of a Bible book at the top of the page, this navigation method will move to the next (right) or previous (left) book.

P.S. A handy cheat sheet of DVJ abbreviations was made by Rakel and can be found on her blog.

  1. I copied this article so that I can have a printout of the abbreviations. When I started reading it I noticed that Deuteronomy (de) is missing from the list. These are great instructions and they are helping me learn to navagate my OSNOVA Net Bible. Thank you so much.
