This is a filter issue, but there's actually insufficient whitespace 
in/around Matt 1:23, to my thinking. It contains a block quote on two 
lines that should be separated by vertical whitepace from both 1:22 and 
the final part of 1:23. Only the latter vertical whitespace is conveyed 
by our filters.

Logos is hosting the OSIS file that I prepared for our release at 
http://www.lexhamenglishbible.com/download/ so you can see exactly what 
was input to osis2mod and compare with what is presented.

My guess is that the issue pertains to filters (possibly OSISHeadings 
since it affects both RTF & HTMLHREF users.

I issued an update with a workaround that flips the order of

<div type="section">


<div type="section">

That seems to fix it.
