      n : the third of three divisions of the Hebrew Scriptures [syn:
          Ketubim, Writings]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    the holy writings, a term which came early into use in the
    Christian church to denote the third division of the Old
    Testament scriptures, called by the Jews Kethubim, i.e.,
    "Writings." It consisted of five books, viz., Job, Proverbs, and
    Psalms, and the two books of Chronicles. The ancient Jews
    classified their sacred books as the Law, the Prophets, and the
    Kethubim, or Writings. (See BIBLE.)
      In the New Testament (Luke 24:44) we find three corresponding
    divisions, viz., the Law, the Prophets, and the Psalms.
