The Oxford Illustrated History of the Bible A richly illustrated account of the story of the Bible written by leading scholars.

Baruch

Baruch (also known as 1 Baruch) is contained in Codex Vaticanus and Codex Alexandrinus, as an appendix to the book of Jeremiah, immediately before Lamentations; Codex Sinaiticus omits it. It is also not included in the earliest manuscripts of the Vulgate, and Jerome commented that it was not read by Jews, and so would not make a fresh translation, leaving the Old Latin (translated from the Greek) to be included in later Vulgate Bibles.

The book is commonly divided by scholars into two (sometimes more) parts, possibly by different authors, and possibly in different original languages. Generally, the first part ( 1: 1–3: 8 ) is believed to have been composed in Hebrew, while on 3: 9–5: 9 there is no consensus. Thackeray argued that the Greek translator of Baruch 1: 1–3: 8 was the same as the second Greek translator of Jeremiah, who rendered chapters 29–51 . More recently, Tov has suggested that Jeremiah 29–51 and Jeremiah 52 represent a revision of an older Greek translation, still preserved in Jeremiah 1–28 . But in either case, whether Baruch 3: 9–5: 9 was ever a translation, rather than a Greek composition, remains disputed.
