Yariba (or Yoruba) Version of the Scriptures

Yariba (or Yoruba) Version Of The Scriptures Yariba is an African language spoken by the tribes on the right, or west, bank of the Niger. A translation into this dialect is of recent date. The first part printed was the epistle to the Romans, translated by the Reverend S. Crowther, a native of the country. It was published in 1850. In the following year the gospel of Luke, the Acts of the Apostles, together with the epistles of James and Peter, were printed by the British and Foreign Bible Society. Other parts were added from time to time, and at present the Yorubas enjoy the entire New Test., together with the books of Genesis to Ruth, Psalms, and Daniel, of the Old Test., in their vernacular.
