I tested your document.
On my system, opening your PDF, the punctuation *is not trimmed, just a bit out of alignment*
I do have the same if I open the Scribus document and have the same output.
I tried to change the font and it is still the same

I alos tried the thing on a fresh test document with justified text : the punctuations are 
correctly aligned.

Si it is strange, I wonder if there is another setting in your document which produces 
this misalignment...

>> The above link shows a generated PDF where on page one punctuation characters at the right end of some of the lines of the right-hand text frame are chopped off on the right.  Pages two and three of the PDF do not show this problem.  Comparing pages one and three of the .sla I see that the right-hand text frames have the same width and the same x pos, so I don't know why only page one shows this problem.

>> One location on page three showing the problem is not present is chapter five, verse nineteen, line one.  At the far right end there's a comma that is not cut off in the PDF.
