The Octateuch (/ˈɒktətjuːk/, from Ancient Greek: ἡ ὀκτάτευχος, romanized: he oktateuchos, lit. '"eight-part book"') is a traditional name for the first eight books of the Bible, comprising the Pentateuch, plus the Book of Joshua, the Book of Judges and the Book of Ruth. These texts make up the first eight books of the Septuagint, which provided the ordering used in traditional Christian Bibles. This order is quite different from that of the Masoretic Text of the Jewish Bible, where Ruth is considered part of the third section of the canon, the Ketuvim, and is found after the Song of Songs, being the second of the Five Megillot. The Ethiopian Beta Israel Jewish community also uses the Octateuch, which they simply call the Orit.

Oktateuco (do grego antigo ὀκτάτευχος, transliteração neolatina óctateukos = "oito livros" ou "oito recipientes" ou "oito rolos") é um nome dado às vezes aos primeiros oito livros da Bíblia hebraica: (1) Gênesis, (2) Êxodo, (3) Levítico, (4) Números, (5) Deuteronômio, (6) Josué, (7) Juízes e (8) Livro de Rute. Também se costumam chamar os primeiros quatro livros de Tetrateuco — sendo classicamente os cinco primeiros livros ditos Pentateuco (ou Torá) — e os primeiros seis livros como o Hexateuco. O Eneateuco é o Heptateuco acrescido de Livros de Samuel e Livros de Reis (cada par de livros contado como um, e não incluindo o Livro de Rute). Para a Bíblia hebraica, o termo não é utilizado, porque o livro de Rute encontra-se num momento e numa posição posteriores.
