Newly translated and paraphrased selections from Old Testament and so-called apocryphal biblical wisdom literature, including The Wisdom of Solomon , Jesus Ben Sirach, Tobias (Tobit), Greek Ezra , King David and other inspired Jewish and Greek writers, are rendered into modern English. The original stories of The Three Wise Young Men and Tobias (Tobit} have been reconstructed, whilst retaining as many of the later moralistic interpolations as seemed consistent with the original narratives. Tobias is especially important as it is the book drawn upon by Jesus of Nazareth for his most famous parable and maxims. Other books represented include Susanna , The Visions of Ezra , Proverbs , Psalms , Baruch and The Prayer of Manasseh.
