Note: "If citing a PDF e-book that is identical in all respects to the print edition, it is not necessary to indicate the format consulted.  However, because other electronic formats do not conform in all respects to the print edition, in those cases authors must indicate the format consulted.... Since e-reader formats do not have stable page numbers, it is preferable to cite the print edition.  However, if an alternative format is consulted, in lieu of a page number, include a chapter or section number...."  This e-book would actually be an example of one "identical in all respects to the print edition" and therefore possessing "stable page numbers", but I cite it here as if this were not the case. "When citing an online version of a book, include the DOI.  In the absence of a DOI, include the URL" (91), as follows:

Older work (in this case the reprint of the translation of a commentary) "made available freely online":  an interpretation of secs. 6.2.17-18, 6.2.25, and 6.4.9, NOW SUPERCEDED TO SOME EXTENT BY THE FOLLOWING SBL BLOG POSTS:  "Citing Text Collections 6:  ANF and NPNF". Text optional according to secs. 6.2.18 (p. 88) and 6.2.25 (p. 91) in red. Remember that "it is preferable to cite the print edition.  However, if an alternative format is consulted, in lieu of a page number, include a chapter or section number in the citation" (6.2.25, p. 91, as in the case of the Christian Classics Ethereal Library (CCEL) examples below, where "vol. 2 at Luke 12:17" and "vol. 2 at Luke 12:13" replace the volume-and-page numbers "2:149" and 2:146").  Note that the translator is especially important in this case because there is at least one other translator of Calvin's Harmonia, namely A. W. Morrison:
