on all the books of Ketuvim besides Daniel and Ezra (which contain large portions in Aramaic anyway).

There are several complementary targumim to Esther.

Collectively, these three books are known as Sifrei Emet (an acronym of the titles in Hebrew, איוב, משלי, תהלים yields Emet אמ"ת, which is also the Hebrew for "truth").

These three books are also the only ones in the Hebrew Bible with a special system of cantillation notes that are designed to emphasize parallel stichs within verses.

The list below presents them in the order they are read in the synagogue on holidays, beginning with the Song of Solomon on Passover.
