This will probably start a debate on the "Jewish Bible", but the best place to look is probably here if you're looking for an English version:

Great response Greg!  Here's a little more detailed answer from the web:

The Jewish Binle is called the Tanakh, and it includes
Torah (תורה), meaning "teaching" or "law," includes the Five Books of Moses. The printed form of the Torah is called "the Chumash" (חומש), meaning "five-part." The Torah is also known by its Greek name, "the Pentateuch," which similarly means "five scrolls." 
Nevi'im (נביאים), meaning "Prophets." This division includes the books which, as a whole, cover the chronological era from the entrance of the Israelites into the Land until the Babylonian captivity of Judah (the "period of prophecy"). However, they exclude Chronicles, which covers the same period. The Nevi'im are often divided into the Earlier Prophets, which are generally historical, and the Later Prophets, which contain more exhortational prophecies. 
Ketuvim (כתובים), meaning "Writings," are sometimes also known by the Greek title "Hagiographa." These encompass all the remaining books, and include the Five Scrolls. They are sometimes also divided into such categories as the "wisdom books" of Job, Ecclesiastes, and Proverbs, the "poetry books" of Psalms, Lamentations and Song of Solomon, and the "historical books" of Ezra-Nehemiah and Chronicles. 
The books of the Jewish Bible are, in this order:
Genesis 
Exodus 
Leviticus 
Numbers 
Deuteronomy 
Joshua 
Judges 
Ruth 
1 Samuel 
2 Samuel 
1 Kings 
2 Kings 
1 Chronicles 
2 Chronicles 
Ezra 
Nehemiah 
Esther 
Job 
Psalms 
Proverbs 
Ecclesiastes 
Song of Solomon 
Isaiah 
Jeremiah 
Lamentations 
Ezekiel 
Daniel 
Hosea 
Joel 
Amos 
Obadiah 
Jonah 
Micah 
Nahum 
Habakkuk 
Zephaniah 
Haggai 
Zechariah 
Malachi 
The Old Testament is the first section of the two-part Christian Biblical canon.
The exact canon of the Old Testament differs between the various branches of Christianity. All include the books of the Hebrew Bible, while many traditions also recognise several deuterocanonical books.

The Protestant Old Testament is, for the most part, identical with the Hebrew Bible; the differences are minor, dealing only with the arrangement and number of the books. For example, while the Hebrew Bible considers Kings to be a unified text, and Ezra and Nehemiah as a single book, the Protestant Old Testament divides each of these into two books.

The differences between the Hebrew Bible and other versions of the Old Testament such as the Samaritan Pentateuch, the Syriac, Latin, Greek and other canons, are greater. Many of these canons include whole books and additional sections of books that the others do not. The translations of various words from the original Hebrew may also give rise to significant differences of interpretation.

Yes, the JPS translation is available in its current form and in a early form. The Hebrew text is known as the Masoretic text. The Jewish Bible is divided into 3 sections: Torah, Prophets and Writings.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Wrong order.
