Your paper-writing and citation guidelines for the Divinity School come from the Turabian manual.

Bible-specific Citation Guidelines

The following guidelines describe writing papers for Campbell Divinity School.  These guidelines, which are based on the Turabian guide, describe how to cite the Bible itself, study Bible notes, commentaries, Bible dictionaries, other scholarly books, and articles.  It may help you to download and even print out a copy.  Please note that the editor of an entire volume, commentary series, or study Bible may not be the author of the particular section you're citing.

You may also just wish to see a quick online guide to the format as a whole.  That's located here:
