Phi, not phi-squared, and "statistics", not "test",
since it is a measurement. Phi is just sqrt(chi2/N)

Here we are rather after the certainty that there is
a significant difference, so I'd favour chi2 in this
particular case. I suspect that, run on the KJV against,
say, Shakespeare's plays, it might, just might, find
a significant difference, because of all those "and"
in the KJV, which are literal translations of the
vav-consecutive construction of Hebrew.
