Thank you for the clarification. That was how I read 18.104.22.168.7 but as
there was no example including $s and $f, I just wanted to be 100% sure
before advising others of this and making further changes to
pre-existing Bible headings in our local catalogue.

So in MARC, you add $k Selections after $a Bible just like you would when using "Selections" for a non-religious work with no creator like in this English expression of selections of Arabian nights: $a Arabian nights. $k Selections. $l English.
