Eromangan Version of the Scriptures

Eromangan Version Of The Scriptures This language is spoken in the island of Eromanga, one of the New Hebrides group. The version of Luke's gospel, which was published: in 1864, was begun by the Reverend G.N. Gordon, who was cruelly massacred by the natives in 1860. The work was completed by his brother, the Reverend James I. The latter has since translated the book of Genesis, which was printed at Sydney in 1868, and was followed by Matthew's gospel in 1869, at London. In 1878 the Acts of the Apostles, which were translated by the Reverend H.A. Robertson, were published at the request of the New Hebrides mission at Sydney. These are at present the only parts of the Scripture translated into this language. (B.P.)
