Ka Baibala Hemolele - The Holy Bible Product Description:
This edition is based on the original Hawaiian Bible produced in the 19th century. Each word, phrase, sentence and passage was considered in its Biblical context and respelled to include contemporary Hawaiian spelling using the ‘okina (glottal stop) and kahakō (macron). The sounds represented by these characters were always present in the language, but previously unwritten. The editors of this work carefully considered the source languages—Hebrew and Greek—and various English translations in respelling the Hawaiian. Faithfulness to the original text and accurate scholarship were of the utmost importance.
This bilingual Baibala continues the tradition begun when ‘Ōpūkaha‘ia left Kealakekua as a youth, arrived in New England, and accepted Christianity. Through his writings, life, and untimely death, ‘Ōpūkaha‘ia inspired the spreading of the Christian faith to Hawai‘i nei.
This is the third publication of work by Partners in Development Foundation’s Hawaiian Bible Project.
