Bibles and copyright

I have downloaded the NKJV, NIV, NASB, MSG, ESV, CEV and AMP bibles off the Open Song website to import into OpenLP.

I am a bit confused about all the copyright conditions and which bibles I can use in a church service.

Can anybody enlighten me as to which versions can be used? As some seem to have no restrictions, others are restricted to how many verses can be used (but not sure if it means the verses used in one particular service or combined over all services the bible is used in), then to confuse it even more some seem to need permission to use them at all.

Thanks in advance,

Paul
