Phase 4: Old Testament - Ezra to Psalms and Lamentations

Support - you can help fulfil this vision: click here to find out how...

During early 2014, we hope the Argentine Bible Society will take on responsability for the organization of the project and will provide financial support for the Toba translators.


The translation of the remaining Old Testament books will then continue, following the working schedules and projected deadlines to be agreed with the ABS. We are praying for one, or possibly two, women to join the translation team.


Probable books for the next stage are Genesis, Joshua, Judges, Nehemiah, and more of Psalms.

Please pray for this!

Phase 2: Old Testament:

(2011 - 2023)

Phase 3: the Old Testament - transition stage

During 2013, the translation team continued working on the first draft translation of the following books: Ezra, Esther, Job, Lamentations and began work on Psalms.


Michael  began processing these hand-written texts, as well as coordinating the final checking of the Minor Prophets.


This year served as a transition period, as we awaited the formalization of a new stage of the project, under the direction of the Argentine Bible Society, which is now expected to come into effect early 2014.

Phase 2: the Old Testament - Minor Prophets

In February 2011, Michael returned to northern Argentina, sensing God’s call to continue translation work with the Tobas.


During 2011 and 2012, the Western Toba translation team began work on the Old Testament, with informal support from the Anglican Church of Northern Argentina and the Argentine Bible Society. The objective: translate the 12 books of the Minor Prophets, Hosea to Malachi.


By the end of 2012, all 12 books had been translated, and all but Hosea and Zechariah had been checked.

 

almost complete

The books of Hosea and Zechariah have now reached the final stages of the checking process.


During 2014, we hope the Argentine Bible Society will print one or maybe two of the Minor Prophet books.
