As I look at the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Old Testament. Why did they switch the chapters and verses around? It makes it difficult because when ch. and verse is quoted from a Christian Bible it is not always in that place in the Jewish Bible.

Bible means "collection of Books", and how one keeps the order of the collection is their choice -which in this age, is made by publishers, according to tradition. Not everyone has the same collection, nor the same order of placement.
