Judaeo-persian Version of the Scriptures

Judaeo-Persian Version Of The Scriptures This is the Persian New Test. in Hebrew characters, and designed for the Jews in Persia. When, in 1841, Dr. Haberlin applied to some Christian friends for aid in imparting the Scriptures to the Persian Jews, he received in reply from Herat a copy of Martyn's Persian New Test., written in Hebrew characters. under the care of Dr. Login. Dr. Haberlin laid the version before the Calcutta committee, and they agreed to refer the matter to the British and Foreign Bible Society. The latter requested the Calcutta Society to print an edition of two thousand New Tests. in this form, and arrangements were made to have the edition printed at Calcutta, under the eye of the Reverend Dr. Yates. The death of the latter rendered this plan abortive, and after the Bombay Society had transmitted to London manuscript copies of the Judaeo-Persian gospels, an edition of one thousand copies was completed at London in 1849, under the superintendence of the Reverend Dr. Wilson of Bombay. These are all the printed parts extant. (B.P.)
