The Catholic RSV has the additional complete books between the
canonical Hebrew books and the NT, but the additions to Esther etc are
carried where they come in the LXX. Also, we need to know where we
are going with regard to the different versification schemes that are
around. For instance the NJB would be far easier to re-do correctly if the
LXX versification could be used - and of course the LXX itself, which there
is no doubt that the apostles used, normally follows the versification used
in Jerome's Vulgate, and most Catholic editions.
