Notes on Baruch

Baruch is 6 chapters in the Catholic tradition where chapter 6 is the Letter of Jeremiah. The Orthodox tradition is to have Baruch with 5 chapters and the Letter of Jeremiah as a separate book. In Syriac Bibles (not listed here) Baruch is called 1 Baruch because they also have 2 Baruch.
