Hi Troy,

Ah, that makes sense, as we've always been passing a scope.  I guess 
the best thing to do would be to not provide a scope if the scope is 
just going to be the whole Bible anyway.  Better yet, could I help get 
that into the Sword library itself?  From there I could go to getting 
it working if it's a single range, and then multiple ranges wouldn't be 
too much harder.
