Chapters And Verses Stats

I had fun a a couple of years ago counting all of the number of verses in the bible and doing a bit of a statistical analysis of that data. I found some interesting things; for example Luke has the most number of verses per chapter, which is why it always took me ages to read through Luke. I hope you find this useful
