Misleading Headline

This morning CNN had a headline "Chapter 11, Verse 1."

Since chapter 11 in Genesis is the Tower of Babel story,
I thought it might have something to do with languages.
But it turned out to be about a Roman Catholic Diocese
that recently declared bankruptcy. (Chapter 11 is a section
of the United States bankruptcy law allowing an entity to
hold off creditors while it reorganizes itself.)
