The "book of Samuel the seer" undoubtedly means 1 and 2 Samuel. However, the books of Nathan and Gad have been lost. Other ancient books mentioned in the Old Testament include the book of Jasher (Joshua 10:13; 2 Samuel 1:18); the book of the acts of Solomon (1 Kings 11:41); the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah (1 Kings 14:29); the prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite and the visions of Iddo the seer (2 Chronicles 9:29); the book of Shemaiah the prophet (2 Chronicles 12:15); the story of the book of the kings (2 Chronicles 24:27); the book of Jehu (2 Chronicles 20:34); and the book of the wars of the Lord (Numbers 21:14). Probably none of these were divinely inspired, as our present canonical books, but the portions incorporated by Ezra or others in their own inspired writings were used by inspiration.
