Books of the Bible
A table cell with an asterisk (*) indicates that a book is present but in a different order. Empty cells indicate that a book is absent from that canon; such books are often called apocrypha, a term that is sometimes used specifically (and possibly pejoratively) to describe the books in the Catholic canon that are absent from the Protestant Bible; Catholics describe these books as deuterocanonical.
As of 05/20/2007 this table began as a verbatim copy of Wikipedia's Books_of_the_Bible page.
- Names in brackets are the Septuagint names and are often used by the Orthodox Christians.
- Some Eastern Orthodox churches follow the Septuagint and the Hebrew bibles by considering the books of Ezra and Nehemiah as one book.
- The Catholic and Orthodox Book of Esther includes 103 verses not in the Protestant Book of Esther.
- The Latin Vulgate and the Douay-Rheims place First and Second Maccabees after Malachi; modern Catholic translations place them after Esther.
- Eastern Orthodox churches include Psalm 151, not present in all canons.
- The Book of Odes includes the Prayer of Manasseh. This book is not present in the Catholic or Protestant Tanakhs.
- In Catholic Bibles, Baruch includes a sixth chapter called the Letter of Jeremiah. Baruch is not in the Protestant Tanakh.
- Eastern Orthodox Bibles have the books of Baruch and the Letter of Jeremiah separate.
- In Catholic and Orthodox Bibles, Daniel includes three sections not included in Protestant Bibles. The Prayer of Azariah and Song of the Three Holy Children are included between Daniel 3:23-24. Susanna is included as Daniel 13. Bel and the Dragon is included as Daniel 14. These are not in the Protestant Tanakh.
- These books are found among the historical and wisdom books of the Christian canons.
