[1913 Webster] Note: Fourteen such writings, or books, formed part of the Septuagint, but not of the Hebrew canon recognized by the Jews of Palestine. The Council of Trent included all but three of these in the canon of inspired books having equal authority.

The Apocrypha is now commonly ?mitted from the King James's Bible. [1913 Webster]
