This is a tiny little web app that provides a JSON API for grabbing bible verses and passages.
This service is provided by Tim Morgan. You can get the source code for this app and the open data for its database at https://github.com/seven1m/bible_api.
You can get pretty crazy with book names and with verse ranges using commas and hyphens. It mostly just works. (Though, if it doesn't, you can submit an issue and let us know!)
