  1. Michael says:

    This summary might be useful.

    Broadly speaking the Hebrew literature of the OT time can be conveniently divided into three groups:

    PROTOANONICAL Books, which are co-xtensive with the Hebrew Canon, and the Protestant Bible:
    Pentateuch (“five books of Moses”)
    Josua, Judges, Ruth
    Samuel I and II (or Kings I and II)
    Kings I and II (or Kings III and IV)
    Chronicles I and II (or Paralipomenon I and II)
    Ezra (or Esdras I), Nehemiah (or Esdras II)
    Esther (Hebrew Esther)
    Job, Psalms, Proverbs
    Ecclesiastes, Canticle of Canticles (or The Sung of Solomon)
    Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel
    Daniel (Hebrew Daniel), Ch.1 and 2, part of Ch.3, Ch.4-12
    Twelve Minor Prophets (Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zachariah, Malachi).

    DEUTEROCANONICAL Books, coextensive approximately with the Protestant “Apocrypha”:

    Esther (parts of the Greek Esther, incorporated into the Hebrew Esther (see above), usually printed in italics with the chapters and verses indicated differently). Protestant include the whole Greek Ester under “Apocrypha”.

    Daniel part of Ch.3 (Protestant: The Prayer of Azariah and the Song of Three Yung Man. In Catholic Bibles it is incorporated into the Dan. Ch.3, and printed in italics)

    Daniel Ch.13 (Protestant: Susanna) and Ch.14 (Protestant: Bell and the Dragon)

    Baruch Ch. 1-5 (Protetant: Baruch)
    Baruch Ch 6 (Protestant: Letter of Jeremiah)

    Tobit, Judit, Maccabees I and II
    Wisdom (or Wisdom of Solomon), Sirach (or Ecclesiasticus)

    Protestant “Apocrypha” also include: Esdras III and IV, and The Prayer of Manasseh.

    APOCRYPHA (proper), Protestant: Pseudoepigrapha.

    There are many books:
    Life of Adam and Eve, Baruch II, III, IV, Ascension of Isaiah, Maccabees III, IV, V, Book of Noah, Psalms of Solomon etc.

    We include here the three Protestant “Apocrypha” (see just above: Esdras III and IV, and The Prayer of Manasseh).
