I Esdra, 1 Esdras(noun)
an Apocryphal book consisting of a compilation from I Chronicles and II Chronicles and Ezra and Nehemiah
1 Esdras, Greek Ezra, is an ancient Greek version of the biblical Book of Ezra in use among ancient Jewry, the early church, and many modern Christians with varying degrees of canonicity. First Esdras is substantially the same as Masoretic Ezra, with one notable addition corresponding to the middle of Ezra Chapter 4. As part of the Septuagint translation of the Old Testament, it is regarded as canonical in the churches of the East, but Apocryphal in the West. First Esdras is found in Origen's Hexapla. Greek and related versions of the Bible include both Esdras α and Esdras β in parallel.
