The Apocryphal New Testament Easy to use collection of English translations of the New Testament Apocrypha.

5 and 6 Ezra

In many manuscripts of the Latin Bible 4 Ezra has two additional chapters at the beginning and two at the end. These are not present in other versions. Chs. 1–2 are usually described as a Christian apocalypse, possibly of the late second century and known as 5 Ezra; chs. 15–16 are apocalyptic prophecies known as 6 Ezra, and are probably a century later in origin. The Latin text of one recension can be found conveniently in the Appendix to the Stuttgart Vulgate (ed. R. Weber). (There is a small Greek portion of 6 Ezra in A. S. Hunt, OP 7 (London, 1910), 11 ff.)
