Bibliomancy scripts

Bibliomancy consists of selecting a random passage from a book such as the Bible.  The following two scripts are intended to assist in the process.  They both present you with all the possibilities and allow you to make the selection; they do not make it for you.

The bibliomancy script allows you to make a selection from any book; you enter the number of pages, chapters, verses, and so forth, and then make a random selection.

The Whole Bible [compressed file, 1.8 MB] contains the text of what I consider to be the whole Bible, as illustrated in the preview below.  There are links to every book and chapter, and a sortes biblicae script that allows you to select a verse from the entire text.

The Boook of
1The words of the blessing of Enoch wherewith he blessed the chosen and just, who will exist on the day of tribulation when all the wicked and impious shall be removed. 2And then answered and spoke Enoch, a just man, whose eyes were opened by God so that he saw a holy vision in the heavens, which the angels showed to me, and from them I heard everything, and I knew what I saw, but not for this generation, but for the far-off generations which are to come. 3Concerning the chosen I spoke and conversed concerning them with the Holy and Great One, who will come from his abode, the God of the world. 4And from there he will step on to Mount Sinai, and appear with his hosts, and appear in the strength of his power from heaven. 5And all will fear, and the watchers will tremble, and great fear and terror will seize them to the ends of the earth. 6And the exalted mountains will be shaken, and the high hills will be lowered, and will melt like wax before the flame. 7And the earth will be submerged, and everything that is on the earth will be destroyed, and there will be a judgment upon every thing, and upon all the just. 8But to the just he will give peace, and will protect the chosen, and mercy will abide over them, and they will all be God’s, and will be prosperous and blessed, and the light of God will shine for them. 9And behold, he comes with myriads of the holy to pass judgment upon them, and will destroy the impious, and will call to account all flesh for everything the sinners and the impious have done and committed against him.
1I observed everything that took place in the heavens, how the luminaries, which are in the heavens, do not depart from their paths, that each one rises and sets in order, each in its time, and they do not depart from their laws. 2See the earth and observe the things that are done on it, from the first to the last, how no work of God is irregular in appearing. 3See the summer and the winter, how then the whole earth is full of water, and clouds and dew and rain rest over it.
And so on . . . .
