WHAT DOES WRITINGS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Writings

Ketuvim

Ketuvim is the third and final section of the Tanakh, after Torah and Nevi'im. In English translations of the Hebrew Bible, this section is usually entitled "Writings" or "Hagiographa". The Ketuvim are believed to have been written under the Ruach HaKodesh, but with one level less authority than that of prophecy. Found among the Writings within the Hebrew scriptures, I and II Chronicles form one book, along with Ezra and Nehemiah which form a single unit entitled "Ezra–Nehemiah". Collectively, eleven books are included in the Ketuvim.
