mcgafter noun

A makeshift instrument or tool (mechanical, electronic or otherwise) whereby one may gaff (poke, hook, hack) something to achieve the desired result. Works better when it gets attached to a mcgoerie*. Very common worldwide especially in parts of Africa where it has been known to be the tool of choice of even high level government officials for all governmental problems.


mcgoerie noun

A well designed tool similar in shape and function to a mcgafter* yet completely different in it's purpose. May also be used on it's own. Uses of this instrument are very rare and appears to only occur in the countries of Namibia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and South Africa, as well as where former residents of those countries have dispersed abroad.

@MarcvanDongen Thanks you've been a great help, so no problem for me to wait a bit. I'll pass that first word in there and fix that, thanks for the advice.

@Marc van Dongen: You could in theory just ignore the embedded image but here is the file. torahCropped.pdf If you look at the Hebrew in TorahCropped the verse numbers are left out in such a case. However if it is easier, just add them along with a comma or two.

I really appreciate you help. However I still need to step up the counter by one, for every first verse of every chapter, because I am using the chapter number as the number of the first verse. I guess it need something like \advance\msec@count by 1\relax in the correct place. I'm just not sure where.

@Yiannis Lazarides: Marc van Dongen is right. However I'll upvote you because your solution can be helpful in my future projects and comes close to what I want. Have a look at Marc's answer below, he's got it figured out, it seems.

You are right I unfortunately did not specify it. I took it for granted that the solutions would take the chapter verse layout into account. If you could add it and it works I'll accept your answer. If you really feel this should be a separate question I can create another one. And you can answer it there with the extra reset feature, then I'll accept that too.

This looks like the solution. I can't quite figure out which counter to reset to 1 for resetting my verses after a chapter so that they can start from 1 again.

@YiannisLazarides The numbers are verses in the Bible indeed.
