Hi Johnnie. The Book of Jasher is not in the biblical canon. The history of it is that there used to be a book of a similar name (Book of Jasher) as quoted in Joshua 10:12,13 and 2 Samuel 1:18-27, but that book as been lost into antiquity. However, the lament that David expressed for the loss of Saul & Jonathan & his teaching the children of Judah in the use of the bow, was also recorded in this Book of Jasher.

But when we refer to the Book of Jasher today, it appears that it is actually an 18th Century forgery, alleging to be a translation of that original lost book, therefore there is no value in pursuing such a search, or if some translation is found, it is to be highly suspected.
