    Default Books of the Bible

    As one of my Christmas gifts I received a Nuevo Testamento. This is great reading practice, particularly the Gospels because the stories are so familiar and of course I have a handy translation in English to compare.
    I have a problem though in that there is a list of Siglas Biblicas which I cannot match up. They cover references to the Books of Old Testament and being a Spanish Catholic Bible also have references to the Apocrapha. The difficult ones for me are as follows.
    Si for Sirácida, Sab for Sabiduría, Sof for Sofonías and Qo for Qohélet. The others I can make out but these have me stumped. They do not appear in any of my dictionaries. ¿Can someone help with a translation please?

    Not at all reigious, but I do like trying to puzzle things out, so not sure if my 'pearls of wisdom' are going to be more of a hindrance than a help! Hope not.
    This is what a bit of googling and automatic translating came up with.
    Siracida - tambien llamado Eclesiastico (which would seem to speak for itself, but more of that later!).
    Sabiduria - Book of Wisdom/Knowledge. I thought maybe Proverbs but, as I said, I don't know much about the subject matter.
    Sofonias - the tenth of the twelve Minor Prophets, who is seemingly celebrated on the 3rd December, so that might help you to identify him.
    Qohelet - this is where it gets really confusing as this is supposed to be the Hebrew name of the Book of Ecclesiastes, which takes us back to #1!

    Anyway, that's my twopennyworth. Good luck but if you want to investigate further, Google does have a lot to offer.

    Sorry
    Don't have sufficient Spanish to do an accurate translation but perhaps the following site will be of use to you.

    Thaks for the pointers. I think I have the answers.
    Qohelet is the Spanish for Ecclesiastes the book that comes after Proverbs in the Old Testament.
    Siracida is also known as Eclesiasticus which is Ecclesiaticus in English and is in the Apocrypha. This does not feature in most bibles but does in some Roman Catholic bibles.
    Sofonias is the Spanish for Zephaniah in the Old Testament
