Hi all!
I would like to get the text of every first verse in the book of Psalms. How do I do it? Can please help? I need it because I would like to do a study on the titles and lack-off in the Psalms.

Thanks!

There are a couple different ways that I can imagine. There is probably a better way. But here's what I would try.
-Use Tools/Export Database on the text of the book of Psalms. Then use a macro in your word processor to find ":1" lines and skip them and delete the rest.
OR
-Create a verse list in the VLM and then Export it. (You could generate this verse list by searching in the Psalms for .psa* or other common words in titles.)

You could also type psa 1:1 in the search and use the dropdown chapter menu in the display window to change from one chapter's first verse to the next's, and so on.
