Synopsis

This book comes complete with a Touch-or-Click Table of Contents, divided by each section. The Book of Judith is a deuterocanonical book, included in the Septuagint and the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Christian Old Testament of the Bible, but excluded by Jews and Protestants. The book exists in distinct Greek and Latin versions, of which the former contains at least eighty-four verses more than the later. St. Jerome says that he translated it from the Chaldaic in one night, "magis sensum e sensu, quam ex verbo verbum transferens" (aiming at giving sense for sense rather than adhering closely to the wording). He adds that his codices differed much, and that he expresses in Latin only what he could clearly understand of the Chaldaic. You can purchase other religious works directly from Wyatt North Publishing. Enjoy.
