Niasian Version of the Scriptures

Niasian Version Of The Scriptures Niasian is spoken on the island of Nias, which lies near Sumatra, and contains a large population, estimated by the Reverend J. Denninger at eighty thousand souls. Up to the year 1871 nothing had. been done for the island in the way of printing; but Mr. Denninger, of the Barmen Evangelical Missions, who labored for many years in this and the adjoining island, committed the language to writing, prepared a grammar in it, and translated some parts of the Scripture. In 1873 the British and Foreign Bible Society printed the gospel of Luke, and this is at present the only part of Scripture extant. (B.P.)
