Biblical Text API Update: VOTD can now be returned

Now, you can fetch the Bible.org Verse of the Day (VOTD) through the Biblical Text API. For a normal API call, you set the passage parameter to the bible passage you wish to fetch. You can still do that, but if you set passage=votd, the VOTD will be returned.

Example: http://labs.bible.org/api/?passage=votd&type=xml

And, you can have the passage returned as plain text, XML, JSON, and JSONP. Read more about the API here
