The Book of Ezekiel, also called The Prophecy of Ezekiel, one of the major prophetical books of the Old Testament. According to dates given in the text, Ezekiel received his prophetic call in the fifth year of the first deportation to Babylonia (593 B.C.E.) and was active until about 570 B.C.E.
The Book of Jeremiah, also called The Prophecy Of Jeremias, one of the major prophetical writings of the Old Testament. As a prophet, Jeremiah pronounced God's judgment upon the people of his time for their wickedness. He was concerned especially with false and insincere worship and failure to trust Yahweh in national affairs. He denounced social injustices but not so much as some previous prophets, such as Amos and Micah.
The Book of Isaiah is the first of the earlier Prophets in the Hebrew Bible and the first of the Major Prophets in the Christian Old Testament. Isaiah is a book that unveils the full dimensions of God's judgment and salvation. God is "the Holy One of Israel" (see 1:4; 6:1 and notes) who must punish his rebellious people (1:2) but will afterward redeem them (41:14,16).
The Book of Psalms, commonly referred to simply as Psalms, the Psalter or “the Psalms,” is the first book of the Ketuvim, the third section of the Tanakh, and a book of the Christian Old Testament. These are sacred poems meant to be sung. The Psalms are for the most part a book of prayer and praise. In it, faith speaks to God in prayer and of God in praise. But there are also psalms that are explicitly didactic (instructional) in form and purpose (teaching the way of godliness).
The story of Job is one of the best known in the entire Bible yet, strangely enough, one of the least understood. No book in the Scripture is so shrouded in mystery as this ancient story. As Winston Churchill once described the Soviet Union, Job is “a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.” Tangled and troubling, its pages are veiled with the deep, perplexing issues of life. Profoundly provocative to the human mind, Job is a journey into the inscrutable ways of God.—Max Anders and Steven Lawson
The Book of Genesis, the first book of the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Old Testament, is an account of the creation of the world, the early history of humanity, Israel's ancestors, and the origins of the Jewish people. Its Hebrew name is the same as its first word, Bereshit.
The Book of Exodus is the second book of the Bible. It tells a story about Israelites being delivered from slavery, involving an Exodus from Egypt through the hand of Jehovah, the leadership of Moses, revelations at the biblical Mount Sinai, and a subsequent "divine dwelling" of God with Israel.
