*Note: Some websites and religiouspublishers use very short abbreviations, consisting of only 1 or 2 letters,which sometimes causes confusion. For example:

Does "Jo"refer to the book of Joshua, or Job, or Jonah, or Joel, or John?

Does "Ju"refer to Judges or to Jude?

Does "Ez"refer to Ezra or Ezekiel?

Does "Ec"refer to Ecclesiates (Qoheleth) or Ecclesiasticus (Sirach)?

Does "Co"refer to "Colossians" or "Corinthians"?

Does "Ti"refer to Timothy or Titus?

Does "Is"refer to Isaiah or is it a form of the verb "to be"?

Thus, it isbest generally to use abbreviations of at least three or four letters.The above table first, and in bold type, lists the abbreviations preferred bythe Society of Biblical Literature (see http://www.sbl-site.org/assets/pdfs/SBLHS.pdf),followed by abbreviations sometimes used by other publishers and authors.
