5eSword does not have support for the Ethiopiac Canon of Eighty-One (Broader Canon).
6eSword does not have support for the Syriac Canon.
7eSword includes these books within other books. This conforms to the standards set by canons other than the one that splits these books.
8This figure includes all books (with one exception) that have been treated as canonical, by one or more Church Council. The exception is Acts 29.
9Current eSword resources that include this material do so, by inserting it as part of the verse that it precedes, or follows.
10This book was included within Daniel 3, prior to e-Sword 8.0.
11This book was included within Daniel 3, prior to e-Sword 8.0.
12This book was included at the end of Daniel 12, prior to e-Sword 8.0.
13This book was included at the end of Daniel 12, prior to e-Sword 8.0.
14This book was intermixed with Esther, prior to e-Sword 8.0.
15At least one eSword Bible resource includes this book within 2 Chronicles.
16This book was included at the end of Psalm 150, prior to e-Sword 8.0.
17In previous versions of this document, these three books (1 Meqabyan, 2 Meqabyan, 3 Meqabyan) were misspelled.
18As best as I can determine, these books have not been translated into English.
19As best as I can determine, these books have not been translated into English.
20This is material that historically was considered to be canonical by the Syriac Church.
21Typically Psalms 152 - 155 are included in Psalms, albeit outside the number.
22This is material that was claimed to be canonical by one or more organizations. However, those organizations no longer claim this material to be canonical.
23German Catholic Canon
24Armenian Apostolic Canon
25Armenian Apostolic Canon
26Ethiopiac Book of Jubilees and Syriac Book of Jubilees have different content.
27Ethiopiac Book of Enoch and Hebrew Book of Enoch have different content.
28This is material that is probably forged. Claims regarding its canonicity have been made based upon textual evidence of both the New Testament, and the document that are listed. No Church Council has ever accepted its authenticity.
