[ * HOME * ] [ * UP! * ]
[ * Books of Faith, Sorrow, and Hope: Psalms (Tehillim), Job (Yiov), Lamentations (Eicha). * ]
[ * Books of Love, Personal and Social Wisdom: Proverbs, (Mishlei), The Song of Songs (Shir Hashirim), Ecclesiastes (Kohelet) * ]
[ * Books about distinguished Women Ruth, Esther * ]
[ * Books about prominent Men Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiya * ]
[ * Chronicles * ]

Commentary, Poetry, and insight of universal validity, and further details regarding the history of the people of Israel. Unlike the chronological order of the first two parts of the Hebrew Bible, The Writings appears as a collection of books where the order is of no special importance. This last third appears to have served as a "catch all" box for writings which did not fit earlier.
