A Fresh Translation of the OT Apocrypha

While the Apocrypha’s canonical status is disputed, it has been embraced by Christians over centuries for personal study, devotion, and worship. The diverse writings in the Apocrypha contain biblical and post-biblical history, historical fiction, wisdom, and liturgy. These books shed light on Second Temple (intertestamental) Judaism and the New Testament, and they continue to inspire readers today.

Beautifully typeset in a single-column format, The Lexham Old Testament Apocrypha provides a literal and contemporary translation for modern readers. David A. deSilva briefly introduces each book, providing context and insight. This volume includes works typically omitted from other editions of the Apocrypha, such as the Psalms of Solomon, the Greek text of Enoch, and multiple versions of Tobit and the additions to Daniel.

At this time, 2 Esdras is lacking chapter and verse Bible milestones. The resource will be updated as soon as it is available.

    Looks good. I’m surprised it wasn’t included in base packages like Brannan’s apostolic fathers
