Rarotongan Version of the Scriptures

Rarotongan Version Of The Scriptures By way of supplement, we add that a revised edition of the Rarotonganm Bible was printed at London in 1872. The revision was undertaken by the Reverend R.W.E. Krause, who returned to Europe on account of illness. The revisers' chief object was to substitute native words, wherever it was possible, for the foreign words which had been used to a large extent in the version in the first instance. In this labor Mr. Krause was aided by the advice and suggestions of the Reverend G. Gill, who had to complete the latter portion, owing to the alarming and serious illness of the original reviser. From the report of the British and Foreign Bible Society for 1884, we learn that the Reverend W. Wyatt Gill, who has had forty years' experience of the South Sea, is now engaged for the Bible Society Committee on a thorough revision of the Rarotongan Bible, and from the report for 1885 we see that the reviser has reached the close of the New Test.
