Can you post the script you have sofar? And what error you are getting?
sqlite cli is more suiteable for your purpose.

Parse required field from your text file with awk (use field separator), set fields to variables and create insert statements, in a loop.

I'd try blindly to use .import from sqlite3 CLI
could you show as an example text file.
Everything depends on the format of your text file.

Depending on it's format sqlite-cli + bash might be sufficient and best

If not I would strongly suggest to write the import script not as a bash script, but in something like python, perl
The code will be easier to write / read / maintain and both suggested languages are installed on most *nix machines
All database(s) provide a means to bulk-load data, either through a utility or a sql command (Like LOAD..INTO).
Now in sqllite3 you may need to generate and use INSERT statements as stated above by Gerwin.
Now regardless of the database, you could use an open-source ETL tool like CloverETL or Pentaho.
