I didn't quite understand your point.

Problem is, he doesn't.

He seems to be just a frontend to the Bible Gateway.  Bible Gateway
seems to be used the Unbound Bible text, which not only is corrupted
but is shown to be an unattributed copy of Imprensa Bíblica
Brasileira's Versão Revisada de Acordo com os Melhores Textos em Grego
e em Hebraico.

I have already written Bible Gateway and Unbound Bible about that with
no answers.

I appreciate your readiness to help, but a simple search on the
