Lifuan Version of the Scriptures

Lifuan Version Of The Scriptures Lifu is a language spoken on the Loyalty Islands. In 1869 the book of Psalms, in the Lifu language, was printed in the island of Mare. In 1872 the New Test. was printed in England, under the care of the translator, the Reverend M. Macfarlane, one of the missionaries at Lifu. In 1877 the Pentateuch was issued from the press, under the editorship of the Reverend S.M. Creagh, of the London Missionary Society. From the report of the British and Foreign Bible Society of 1885, we learn that the completion of the revision of the translation of the Bible was made August 29, 1884. The translator, Reverend S.M. Creagh "is now copying the corrections made in the parts already printed, viz. Pentateuch, Psalms, and New Test., and the number of changes in these amount to 52,310. The whole is being prepared for publication." The same translator is also preparing marginal references. (B.P.)
