- Books of the Latin Vulgate
These are the books of the Latin Vulgate along with the names and numbers given them in the
Douay RheimsBible and King James Bible. There are 76 books in the Clementine edition of the Latin Vulgate, 46 in the Old Testament, 27 in the New Testament, and 3 in the Apocrypha.
The names and numbers of the books of the Latin
Vulgatediffer in ways that may be confusing to many modern Biblereaders. In addition, some of the books of the Vulgate have content that has been removed to separate books entirely in many modern Bible translations. This list is an aid to tracking down the content of a Vulgate reference.
Psalmsof the Vulgatefollow the numbering assigned to them in the Septuagintwhich differs from the numbering found in the King James Bible, though not in the order nor the content. See Psalmsfor more details.
Note that the Apocrypha and
Old Testamentdivisions of the Vulgate do not exactly correspond to those sections in the King James Bible. The Vulgate's Apocrypha section is smaller than the King James Bible's, with a correspondingly larger Old Testament. See the article on the Biblical canonfor details as to why this is so. The names of those books found in the Apocrypha section of their respective versions are in "italics".

The list is for the Clementine Vulgate. Other editions of the Vulgate vary in the Apocrypha, in the order of the books, and in the names of the books.
*The Gutenberg Bible mixes the apocrypha into the
Old Testament, with the Prayer of Manassesfollowing 2 Paralipomenon, and 3 and 4 Esdras following 1 Esdras and Nehemias. The Prayer of Solomonfollows Ecclesiasticus. It thus has 50 books in the Old Testament and 27 in the New, for a total of 77 books.
*The New Vulgate changes the name of "
Ecclesiasticus" to "Liber Siracidae"; "Tobiae" is called "Thobis". Although the New Vulgate contains the Deuterocanonical books, it omits the three apocrypha entirely. It thus has a total of only 73 books.
*The Stuttgart Vulgate adds
Psalm 151and Paul's Epistle to the Laodiceans to the Apocrypha. It thus has 5 books in the Apocrypha, 46 in the Old Testament, and 27 in the New, for a total of 78 books. The spelling of proper names in this edition is irregular and inconsistent, so the names of many of the books were altered, e.g. "Naum" for " Nahum".
