Given that Roman numerals used for chapter numbers never exceed 150 and verse numbers never exceed 176, it suffices to use a lookup table for the required replacements in a Biblical source text.
That’s the approach I have used successfully when faced with this task. As usual for me, it was implemented using DataMystic TextPipe Standard on my Windows PC.
The method requires a whole word search with a restriction to the relevant context pattern for the vernacular scripture references.
