    Glad you like it Mark! Thanks for the positive comments.

    Psalm 37:23

    23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord,
    when he delights in his way; (ESV)

    I just added a command that outputs the esv in plain text instead of rich text. It’s bundled with the main esv-insert command as esv-insert-plain, so if you subscribed to the command with auto-update you should have the new feature.

    You can see sample output for both on the command page you linked to earlier.

    Psalm 37:23

    [23]The steps of a man are established by the LORD,
    when he delights in his way;
