The Jerusalem Bible is a translation of the Old Testament of the Bible, with contributions by J.R.R. Tolkien as translator and lexicographer. The extent of Tolkien's contribution to the translation of this book is uncertain, but he is thought to have worked on the book of Jonah, and possibly the book of Job as well.
