The Order of the Old Testament

“The order in which we have the books of the Old Testament in our English Bibles has come to us through a third century BC Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible. Why they changed the order is only known to them! The Hebrew Bible, however, has come to us as the ‘threefold book’— the Law, the Prophets, and the Writings.” -Alec Motyer, A Christian’s Pocket Guide to Loving the Old Testament
