Nepaulese (or Kharpoora) Version of the Scriptures

Nepaulese (or Kharpoora) Version Of The Scriptures Nepaulese is the principal dialect prevailing in Nepaul (q.v.), and was exclusively used by the higher castes. It is becoming prevalent throughout the whole country, and is rapidly superseding the other dialects. In 1812 a version was commenced at Serampore, and an edition of 1000 copies of the New Test. was issued in 1821. Of late a new translation of portions of the New Test. into. this dialect was made by the Reverend W. Stuart. In 1850, 1000 copies of Luke were printed, and in 1852 a revised edition of 1000 was sent to press, together with 1500 of the Acts of the Apostles. From the annual report of the British and Foreign Bible Society for 1885 we learn that the Scotch Mission at Darjeeling has printed Genesis, Exodus, Proverbs, the Gospels, and Acts.
