*Note: Some website and spiritual publishers use really short abbreviations, consists of only 1 or 2 letters, which sometimes reasons confusion. Because that example:

go "Jo" describe the publication of Joshua, or Job, or Jonah, or Joel, or John? does "Ju" refer to Judges or come Jude? does "Ez" describe Ezra or Ezekiel? walk "Ec" refer to Ecclesiates (Qoheleth) or Ecclesiasticus (Sirach)? walk "Co" describe "Colossians" or "Corinthians"? walk "Ti" refer to Timothy or Titus? walk "Is" describe Isaiah or is that a type of the verb "to be"?

Thus, the is ideal generally to usage abbreviations the at least three or 4 letters. The above table first, and in bolder type, lists the abbreviations desired by the society of Biblical literature (see http://www.sbl-site.org/assets/pdfs/SBLHS.pdf), complied with by abbreviations periodically used by other publishers and authors.
