I am wondering why spacing in various versions is so different in the Psalms. For example (see attachments), NIV84 has no built-in line breaks. NIV11 has line breaks, but no paragraph breaks. ESV has both line breaks and paragraph breaks. (“Set Text Display…” settings are all the same—paragraphs with space.)
I find this simultaneously fascinating yet confusing because I have print copies of all of the above, and all of them have both line breaks and paragraph breaks.
Why do the NIVs (plural) not reflect their print editions?
I know I can change the display settings of the NIV84 so it has line breaks (or at least verse breaks), but is there anything that can be done (whether on my end or yours) to fix the differences?
