Tate Talk 2017™ #1: How to correctly add a Bible verse into an annotation

Hello fellow Genius users! I’m here with the long awaited first Tate Talk of 2017 to cover the use of Bible verses in annotations. I’m in the Christian genre and I see poorly formatted Bible verses all the time, so I’m going to cover, and hopefully clear up, any confusion to do with linking Bible verses and formatting Bible verses in annotations.

Formatting

I see plenty of different formats used when quoting Bible verses in annotations. Bolding, italics, both bolding and italics—all of it is wrong. You should add the verse title in the sentence before, not after, or in the quotation.

Example:

These lines are based off Romans 12:2, which talks about not fitting in with the world.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

The only reason you should italicize something is when you’re stating which Book of the Bible a verse came from, not the actual verse.

The right way to add a Bible to an annotation:

Linking

Linking Bible verses always seems to fall by the wayside when creating an annotation with a Bible verse! You should treat it just like a song lyric used in an annotation. Also, most people don’t know we have the Bible on Genius—you should be using internal site links, not Biblegateway or Biblehub.

Example:

RIGHT

[Romans 1:16](http://ensobet12.com/2133618) talks about being unashamed of your faith.

WRONG

[Romans 1:16](http://biblehub.com/romans/1-16.htm) talks about being unashamed of your faith.

Well this wraps up Tate Talk, glad you could join me! Who’s next?

Really useful! I just learned that the Bible was on Genius after doing a few tates with biblical references. I will have to go back and check those.

July 5th, 2017

Ok so I have a tate where I included The Lord’s Prayer … Would I ital [the lords prayer] or what?

July 5th, 2017

Whoa, good stuff man!

July 5th, 2017

Looks great dude! One thing I just encountered that isn’t specified, what about multiple verses? I’m looking at John 2:1-11. Should I include the verses number, or remove them?

@CalebMac116 @genius-editorial-board hey guys, I was wondering what if one of the Genius bible verses aren’t annotated. Do we still refer to the song page.

Like if a rapper refers to John 2:11, but it’s not annotated, is it cool if I refer to a bible site that explains it?

July 5th, 2017

@jbotting347 brooo, it’s funny how we referred to the same bible verse 😂

@BigBabyGOAT-116 What I think @CalebMac116 is trying to say is link to an internal site rather than external site, but your annotation should give a brief synopsis of the verse, even if the verse isn’t annotated.

That’s crazy dude!!! ahahaha! @BigBabyGOAT-116

@CalebMac116 this is how I have the annotation so far.

I would just put the URL to John 2 because it’s just like a lyric used in a Tate. Normally is it’s not annotated just put the link to the song. This is what I think but I’m not the boss. @bigbabygoat-116 @jbotting347 @Michael

Yeah, that’s what I’m asking

July 5th, 2017

Use the internal link to John 2 not an external link. You should also describe the verse in your annotation if it needs it. @bigbabygoat-116

Use the internal link to John 2 not an external linkou should also describe the verse in your annotation if it needs it.

Fasho. we should explain it so well that that the readers wouldn’t need another website commentary.
