I meant to say Peter Jansson, not Stephan Lehmke... oops.

Even though Stephan Lehmke has a good solution below it looks like this answer fits my needs better, so I'll accept it instead of the other one.

@jon Do you know of some good examples for ledpar/eledpar on the internet which I can examine?

@jon It's handy to know about the pdfcolparallel. I'll try it out. Thanks. And once my original problem is solved I'll review some fonts to see if I might use a more suitable one...

@jon Thanks Jon, I'll look into ledpar. Seems to me the newer one to use is eledpar. It does seem quite a mouthful to get started and I didn't see any examples in the manual.

@mbork I understand your point, but even though Times New Roman is certainly not the most beautiful font, there are very few fonts that read as well as it does. Which is what one is aiming for in the Bible. I've used Cardo sometimes too, which is a bit prettier, but is not as complete as TNR.

@egreg Thanks looks like the solution, but I'll have to try it out first. Must say that in general these LaTeX packages docs aren't the easiest to read and understand.

Do you run it through XeLaTex? I will set this up as a new question tomorrow if it's not a quick fix. The MWE produces three pages of which I am referring to the last one.

I'm not sure how. I'll post my edit of your solution as an answer to this question reduced as much as I can to an MWE.
