Bible passage parser

Use npm to install as a dependency:
npm install --save sword
The API is simple:
var sword = require'sword';var results = sword'1jn 1:2-5';// Use results for something good..// Another use includes getting the name of the book:var id = results0startbook;var book = swordid;// book => '1 John'var bookInRussian = swordid 'ru';// bookInRussian => '1-e Иоанна'var availableLanguages = swordlanguages;// availableLanguages => [['English', 'en'], ['Russian', 'ru'], ..]
Results are in the following form:
start:book: 62 chapter: 1 verse: 2end:verse: 5
Every item in the array is a distinct passage, i.e. comma seperated passages. From there every passage is represented by an object, which stays simple by only returning none redundent data.
