The word Tanakh consists of three different words:

Torah (the first five books of the Bible)
Nevi'im (the prophets)
Ketuvim (the scriptures, such as the Psalms)

Torah – the five books of Moses: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.
Prophets – the prophets are further divided into the early prophets (Joshua, Judges, Samuel and Kings) and the late prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai , Zechariah and Malachi)
Scriptures – Usually in this order: Psalms, Job, Proverbs, Ruth, Song of Songs, Ecclesiastes, Lamentations, Esther, Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Chronicles
The Tanakh ends with the last verse of 2 Chronicles, from chapter 36:
Whosoever among you is of all His people, let the Lord his G-d be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem.
