Thank you Adam, Kim and Val!
I'm asking mainly because it is unclear to me who uses vertical and
horizontal. I can see that in Brazil they use horizontal ? Or maybe the
bible excerpts are old?

also Spanish sign language - there are stories in vertical writing here.

thanks everyone...look forward to more answers..
