Right, but that would be extremely annoying to type in all the time
:-)

\def\Genesis#1{\index[001 #1]{Genesis #1}} etc.

Takes only 66 macros and it even saves you typing :)


I'm looking for a more automated solution, but given that even you
don't know one, it seems I have to write some sorting mechanism
myself.

Or perhaps use the trick above as the input is XML, and the verses are
clearly marked, so I could generate ConTeXt with the proper sort
codes.

Who does the index sorting, is that texexec?
