VI.i.9: Quartus est apud nos ordo Ueteris Testamenti eorum librorum qui in canone Hebraico non sunt. Quorum primus Sapientiae liber est; secundus Ecclesiasticus; tertius Thobias; quartus Iudith; quintus et sextus Macchabaeorum; quos licet Iudaei inter apocrypha separant, ecclesia tamen Christi inter diuinos libros et honorat et praedicat.

We also have a fourth class: Those books of the Old Testament that are not in the Hebrew canon. Of these the first is the Book of Wisdom, the second Ecclesiasticus; the third Tobit; the fourth Judith; the fifth and sixth the books of Maccabees. The Jews hold these separate among the apocrypha, but the Church of Christ honors and proclaims them among the divine books.

VI.ii.33: Iudith uero et Tobiae, siue Machabaeorum libri quibus auctoribus scripti sunt minime constat. Habent autem uocabula ex eorum nominibus, quorum gesta scribunt.

By what authors the books of Judith, Tobit, or Maccabees were written has not been established at all. They take their titles from the names of those whose deeds they inscribe.

VII.viii.29: Iudith laudans, uel confitens

Judith, she who praises, or she who proclaims.
