Book of Odes (Bible)

The Book of Odes (Greek: Ὠδαί), commonly referred to simply as Odes, is a book of the Bible found only in Eastern Orthodox Bibles and included or appended after Psalms in Alfred Rahlfs' critical edition of the Septuagint, coming from the fifth-century Codex Alexandrinus. The chapters are prayers and songs (canticles) from the Old and New Testaments. The first nine of them form the basis for the canon sung during matins and other services.

Chapters of this book as presented by Rahlfs are:

  1. First Ode of Moses (Exodus 15:1–19)
  2. Second Ode of Moses (Deuteronomy 32:1–43)
  3. Prayer of Anna, the Mother of Samuel (1 Samuel 2:1–10)
  4. Prayer of Habakkuk (Habakkuk 3:2–19)
  5. Prayer of Isaias (Isaiah 26:9–20)
  6. Prayer of Jonah (Jonah 2:3–10)
  7. Prayer of Azariah (Daniel 3:26–45, a deuterocanonical portion)
  8. Song of the Three Young Men (Daniel 3:52–88, a deuterocanonical portion)
  9. The Magnificat; Prayer of Mary the Theotokos (Luke 1:46–55)
  10. Benedictus Canticle of Zachariah (Luke 1:68–79)
  11. Canticle of Isaiah (Isaiah 5:1–9)
  12. Prayer of Hezekiah (Isaiah 38:10–20)
  13. Prayer of Manasseh, King of Judah when he was held captive in Babylon (ref. in 2 Chronicles 33:11–13 and appears also as a separate deuterocanonical book)
  14. Nunc dimittis; Prayer of Simeon (Luke 2:29–32)
  15. Gloria in Excelsis Deo; Canticle of the Early Morning (some lines from Luke 2:14, Psalm 144:2 and Psalm 118:12)
