I have a set of 10 verses from the Bible in English. I want to detect the occurrence of any of these verses in a text. What would be the best way to go about doing this?

Note that verses of the Bible are worded differently from one translation to another. For example, the verse "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you" exists in other translations as:

KJV Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

ESV casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

NLT Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

Also, people may make typos or make mistakes when writing a verse.

Would you say Semantic Search is the best approach for this? If so, do I use a pertained word embeddings model, retrain it on my set of 10 verses, and then search my text for the occurrence of these verses?

How would the search mechanism work? Do I get the word embedding sentence by sentence and compare each sentence's embedding one by one with my Bible corpus of 10 verses' embeddings?
