Has anyone thought of recording "3 Ezra" and "4 Ezra" (1 and 2 Esdras)? The WEB bible has translated them, and they have verses missing in other public domain versions, save the RV-1896. The only problem is that they use the Greek names, e.g. Abidas for Obadiah, Esdras for Ezra, Aggeus for Haggai, etc.

Sorry, missed the thing about the version. In any case, we have a complete World English Bible as a solo here:

No, the ASV and YLT didn't translate the apocryphal books to my knowledge. the KJV did translate it, but it isn't included in the catalog, and it does not include the extra 40-ish verses of chapter 7 of 2 Esdras. I know that we have recorded the WEB Bible and at least one apocryphal book from it, but not all of them.

To muddy the waters, the Douay-Rheims translation calls the books we commonly know as "Ezra" and "Nehemiah" as 1 and 2 Esdras :hmm:

Ezra = 1 Ezra
Nehemiah = 2 Ezra
(Apocryphal) I Esdras = "3 Ezra"
(Apocryphal) II Esdras = "4 Ezra"
