Ebon Version of the Scriptures

Ebon Version Of The Scriptures Ebon is the most southerly of the Marshall Islands. These islands are the second group of Micronesia, beginning from the east with the Gilbert Island. The first Scripture in this language was from the gospel of Matthew, chapters 5 to 11. This translation was printed at Ebon, between 1858 and 1860. The work was done by the pioneer missionaries, Reverends E.T. Doane and G. Pierson. A version of Mark, prepared by Mr. Doane, was printed at Honolulu in 1863. The Reverend B.G. Snow prepared for the press the gospels of Matthew and John, and the Acts, and revised Mark for a reprint. In 1871 he prepared the gospel of Luke and a revision of Matthew for the press. In 1877 Genesis was issued from the mission press at Ebon, translated by J.F. Whitney, who also resumed the work on Romans, left unfinished by Mr. Snow, and translated the epistles from 1 Corinthians through Philippians. These were printed at the New York Bible House in 1882, together with the book of Genesis and the three epistles of John. The Reverend E.M. Pease, who joined the mission in 1877, has resumed the work of translation of the rest of the New Test. (B.P.)
