If Baruch is not in the Tanakh, it is odd to read in this entry that "Baruch is found among the prophetical books which include Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, (Baruch), Ezekiel, Daniel, and the twelve minor prophets." "Found?" Found by Catholics one supposes.... Wetman 02:24, 14 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Found by anyone who looks in the Vulgate, the Septuagint, or one of their daughter versions. Perhaps the article should make that clear. Rwflammang 13:27, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

I oppose the merge. Although in modern bibles the Epistle of Jeremy is effectively part of Baruch, in old manuscripts it was not always so. The two works have separate histories. Rwflammang 13:27, 6 October 2006 (UTC)


Something Wrong[edit]

I think its not right to use a picture of a Torah scroll in context with the words Old Testament here. Thats not NPOV I think. If I should say this somewhere else, can someone point me to the right place? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.153.4.250 (talk) 03:23, 27 August 2008 (UTC)


External links[edit]

Are all those external links within the text OK? I thought external links should only be in the External Links section.--Mycomp (talk) 23:19, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

Cats[edit]

Apparently Baruch 6:21 contains the only biblical mention of cats. Notable or trivia? --Rumping (talk) 09:01, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
