  • Jeyakkani on Ecclesiasticus 8
    Please enlighten me about the 8th Chapter of Eccl. It contains 17 verses in the K J V Holy Bible which I have. It is published by Bible Soceity of India. But there are 19 verses in this. Will you please explain why the difference is there.

    With Regards,

    Jeyakkani

    The reference you gave for the Book of Ecclesiastes has indeed got 17 verses. But the Apocryphal Book of Ecclesiasticus has 19 verses. Is this what you're seeing? This latter book was not included in the Canon of Scripture as many other apocryphal books, but you will find it (& others) in some bibles, such as the Catholic Bible or as a separate addition to the Bible.
