Mandingo Version of the Scriptures

Mandingo Version Of The Scriptures The Mandingo is the most important language of modern Negroland, and predominates in many powerful states on both sides of the Gambia. The Reverend Mr. Macbrair, a Wesleyan missionary, was the first to undertake the translation of the Scriptures in this widely extended language. The gospel according to Matthew was printed in London under his superintendence, in 1838, by the British and Foreign Bible Society. The translation of the other three gospels is still in manuscript.
