Orenburg-tartar Version of the Scripture

Orenburg-Tartar Version Of The Scripture As the name indicates, this version is intended for the Tartars in the vicinity of Orenburg. The version made into that dialect is not an original translation, but merely an accommodation of Mr. Brunton's Karass Version (q.v.) to the peculiar idioms and orthography of the Kirghisian Tartars, residing in the Russian government of Orenburg. Mr. Charles Frazer, one of the Scottish missionaries at Astrachan, prepared a translation of the New Test., which left the mission-press at Astrachan in 1820, at the expense of the British and Foreign Bible Society. Since 1871 a part of the Old Test. has also been published. (B.P.)
