    Not sure if the spelling is right, yet can anyone tell me which translations of the Bible include the books of Maccabees?

    Any of the Catholic Bibles or Bibles influenced by the RCC.

    The New American Bible http://www.usccb.org/nab/bible/index.htm#1maccabees

    The Douay-Rheims Bible http://www.scriptours.com/bible/

    The New Jerusalem Bible.

    The King James Version of the Bible, First Edition 1611.
    (However, one can still get a KJV with the apocrypha:

    Or a 1611 First Edition facsimile in readable Roman font (as opposed to the original Gothic) with the apocrypha:

    Pretty much any ecumenical translation, or one widely used in the mainline churches, will have been published an edition that includes the Apocrypha.

    I have seen editions of the Good News Bible, RSV, and NRSV that have the Apocryphal books, in addition to the various Catholic translations and (of course) the KJV.
