#1 I am looking for a special pattern "Bible Verse Regex"

I am looking for a special pattern "Bible Verse Regex"

([\d ]*[a-zA-Z]+( \d*:\d*)?)(( - )| )?(((\d* )?[a-zA-Z]+ )?\d*([:-]+\d*)?)

// zero of more digit(s) or a space
[\d ]*

// any number of upper/lowercase letters
[a-zA-Z]+

// a space followed by an optional any number of digits, a colon,
// and any number of digits again
( \d*:\d*)?)

// an optional hyphen with a space either side, or a space.
(( - )| )

Unfortunately, there are matching issues:
Example:
Filip. 4:13
Filipian 4:13
Jana 5:28, 29
(Rzym. 8:35-37)
Ps. 120:1; 121:1-8
(Kapł. 17:11-14; Dzieje 15:20, 29)
(1 Piotra 5:9)

This pattern is better, but the characters are not exactly matched.
(?:\d|I{1,3})?\s?\w{2,}\.?\s*\d{1,}\:\d{1,}-?,?\d{0,2}(?:,\d{0,2}){0,2}

What characters are not exactly matched?

instead of the \w try [a-žA-Ž0-9]

(?:\d|I{1,3})?\s?[a-žA-Ž0-9]{2,}\.?\s*\d{1,}\:\d{1,}-?,?\d{0,2}(?:,\d{0,2}){0,2}

For example, it does not detect this char in this verse:
(;, 29)

(Kapł. 17:11-14; Dzieje 15:20, 29)

This one sould be found whole at once?
Ps. 120:1; 121:1-8

This one should be found including "1"?
1 Piotra 5:9

Try this expression:
([a-žA-Ž0-9.]+\s+)+([0-9:.,;-]+\s{0,})+[0-9]

looking for at least one: ([a-žA-Ž0-9.]+\s+)+
followed by at least one: ([0-9:.,;-]+\s{0,})+
ennding with: [0-9]

"+" means one or more repeating

Completely defective regex, because it matches everything, a special pattern must carefully recognize versesjvgccdco 1 Piotra 5:9

It's still better because it does not detect incorrect text, but still incorrect
Full / Combine verse
(Rdz 1:9, 10, 13; Neh 9:6; Dz 4:24; 14:15; Obj 14:7)
(?:\d|I{1,3})?\s?\w{2,}\.?\s*\d{1,}\:\d{1,}-?,?\d{0,2}(?:,\d{0,2}){0,2}

Only you know what you want to match. You put few examples only without any text around.
We can't see into your head
