Yes, they did.

There's a great lesson on the structure of the Hebrew Bible (our OT)
at BiblicalTraining.org


There is some really interesting stuff about the order of the books.
And while I do believe it greatly enhances some of my understanding of
the books and the message they convey, I certainly don't see the order
we have today as "wrong".  There are some very interesting parallels
in the order of the Hebrew Bible and the order of the NT, too.

Lessons 3-7 at the link above are very interesting (and are not
condemning or argumentative) and I believe would be worth your time.

I would love to have a Bible with the original order, but am in no way
interested in yet another English version.  I would much rather see
that effort put toward getting the Bible into languages that have no
version at all.
