Punjabi or Sikh Version

Punjabi Or Sikh Version A version of the New Test. for the people inhabiting an extensive counnry of North-west Hindostan called Punjab was commenced in 1807 at Serampore, but the fonts of type were destroyed by fire. The loss, however, was soon replaced, and in 1813 the Gospels and Acts were announced as finished. In 1815 the entire New Test., in an edition of 1000 copies, was completed, and in 1832 a second edition was undertaken. The translation of the Old Test. was also undertaken, and in 1820 the Pentateuch and historical books were issued, and now the whole Bible, published by the Serampore Mission, is read in Punjabi, as the seventy- third report of the British and Foreign Bible Society (1877) shows.
