    I am not sure if this is "ok" or not for a BW user... but wouldn't it be possible to export the ASV (or another older translations), do a find and replace (in the ASV's case for Jehovah), and recompile it back into BW as a custom Bible? You would minimally need to give credit as name it differently in BW (and who knows what else) but maybe that would be possible?

    NJB uses “Yahweh.” Occasional users of “Yahweh” are: BBE (8 times), CSB (78), NAB (3), NLT (10). And TNK uses “YHWH” only once.
    ASV, DBY, YLT use “Jehovah.” And occasional users of “Jehovah” are: KJV (7), ERV (15), JPS (1), RWB (8), and WEB (14).
    CJB uses “ADONAI” and “ELOHIM” (in NT as well).
    The abbreviations are from BibleWorks 7, and the numbers are taken from BW7 as of November 2007.
