Zulu Version of the Scriptures

Zulu Version Of The Scriptures In this language, which is vernacular to the Kaffres, a translation of the New Test. has existed since 1869. It was published by the aid of the American Bible Society. It was formerly supposed that the analogies and general principles subsisting between the Kaffre and Zulu dialects were so proximate that one translation would meet the wants of the two tribes. This idea has been relinquished, and a translation was prepared by American missionaries to provide the Word of God for, a million of benighted heathen. From the annual report of the British and Foreign Bible Society for 1879 we see that an edition of the New Test., slightly revised, but conforming to the society's rule, has been issued by the American Zulu Mission, and that this society has shared largely, as on former occasions, in the work.
