The 3-letter Bible Abbreviation System
This abbreviation system was designed to help keep consistency in abbreviations used on this web-site. It is easy to remember because all abbreviations are only three letters, and in most cases it is the first three letters of the book name. If the two books have the first three letters, the first three different consanents are used (e.g. PHM Philemon, and PHP Philippians). JDE Jude, JDG Judges, and SOS Song of Solomon are special cases.
