This index describes the content and book-order of originally Hebrew scripture in various Bibles.
The modern Jewish canon (Tanakh) is common to all. Most additional content derives from the Septuagint, a pre-Christian Greek translation. Some additions are recognized as Deuterocanonical by some Christian churches. As that term applies only to some cases, and the common Protestant label Apocrypha is also inexact, the Protestant column labels them Intertestamental.
Book names in brackets are cross-reference links, reflecting variations in order. Reading down a column from heading to end-mark and ignoring these links yields a standard-order list of the Protestant, Catholic, or Jewish canon. The Intertestamental books and Vulgate appendices are non-canonical supplements to their respective Bibles. Some notes (attached, somewhat arbitrarily, to the Protestant entries) describe differences in Orthodox (Greek or Russian) Bibles and canons.
Non-bracketed links in the Protestant column lead to my collected quotes from the books.
