Books of Nevi-im - Prophets

  Books of Nevi-im - Prophets

Nevi'im/נְבִיאִים‎ is the second of the three major sections in the Hebrew Bible, the Tanach/תנ"ך. It falls between the Torah (teachings) and Ketuvim (writings).

Nevi'im is traditionally divided into two parts:

  1. Former Prophets or Nevi'im Rishonim [נביאים ראשונים], which contains the narrative books of Joshua through Kings.
  2. Latter Prophets or Nevi'im Aharonim [נביאים אחרונים], which mostly contains prophecies in the form of biblical poetry.
