The only things that were divided up into what could be called verses were the poetic books, since they were written in meter (the New Oxford Annotated Bible has a fascinating appendix about meter in the Psalms). Only a small handful of those were actually "numbered" (lettered) in the original text (Psalm 9 comes to mind).
FWIW, overall I don't care for versification. It's helpful for reference purposes, but it also causes people to treat the Bible like a reference book. And it introduces arbitrary breaks into the text that can cause people to also break up the story, where there would have been no breaks originally.
The original languages the Bible was written in had no verses or chapters, no subject headings (well, except for the Psalms and a few places in Sirach and elsewhere), as well as no paragraphs, and even no punctuation. It was one long, flowing narrative. This is the better way, I think, because people were forced to learn about and interpret events in their context in the story, and not just focusing on 6:15-24 in its own little universe.
That's why I rather like the concept behind the "Books of the Bible
" Bible. It is a heterodox translation (TNIV) and missing several OT books, but it's a nice concept to treat the Bible as the collection of narratives that it is.
