Jalloof Version of the Scriptures

Jalloof Version Of The Scriptures This dialect (also called Jolof, Woloff, Guiluf, etc.),.is spoken by a large tribe near Bathurst, Gambia, West Africa, numbering about 50,000 souls. In 1881, the British and Foreign Bible Society, at the request of the Wesleyan Missionary Society, resolved to print a tentative edition of 500 copies of the gospel of Matthew. The translation was made by Rev. R. Dixon, of Bathurst, Gambia, who had used his version in the services, and found it was understood and liked by the people. See Bible of Every Land, page 407.
