The older testimonies about this book have been given already. I now present the three principal forms of it,as given by Tischendorf: two Greek texts, A and B, and one Latin.The few Greek manuscripts are all late. The earliest authorities are a much abbreviated Syriac version of which the manuscript is of the sixth century, and a Latin palimpsest at Vienna of the fifth or sixth century,which has never been deciphered in full.The Latin version translated here is found in more manuscripts than the Greek.
