Text

Sicut ergo Iudith et Tobi et Macchabeorum libros legit quidem Ecclesia, sed inter canonicas scripturas non recipit, sic et haec duo uolumina legat ad aedificationem plebis, non ad auctoritatem ecclesiasticorum dogmatorum confirmandum.

Therefore, just as the Church reads the books of Judith and Tobias and the Maccabees, but does not receive them among the canonical Scriptures, so also may it read these two scrolls for the edification of the people, not for confirming the authority of ecclesiastical teachings.
