The Book of Judith is a deuterocanonical book, included in the Septuagint and the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Christian Old Testament of the Bible, but excluded from Jewish texts and assigned by Protestants to the Apocrypha.

Although it was likely written by a Jew there is no evidence that the Book of Judith was ever considered authoritative or a candidate for canonicity by any Jewish group.

Amongst all Christian Churches who recognize this Book as canonical, only the Coptic Church celebrates Judith's memory in its Calendar of Saints on September 17. The canonicity of Judith is rejected by Protestants, who accept as the Old Testament only those books that are found in the Jewish canon.

It is not clear whether the Book of Judith was originally written in Hebrew or in Greek.
