*Note on the Apocrypha. The Protestant Old Testament books of Ezra and Nehemiah are known to Roman Catholics as respectively the first and second books of Esdras. The two Apocrypha books of Esdras constitute an entirely separate entity, usually called together Third Esdras by Roman Catholics. This latter two-book Esdras is not considered part of the Old Testament by either Protestants or Roman Catholics. Eastern Orthodox churches hold all the books, including Third Esdras, to be canonical, or part of the Old Testament. The Prayer of Manasseh was included only in the appendix to the Latin Vulgate Bible.
