Ethiopia: New Bible Translation Reaches Waiting Christians

A new Bible translation helps the Tigrai people group understand God's Word.

A new Bible translation was recently completed for Ethiopia’s Tigrai people group, whose heart language is Tigrigna. Although other Bible translations circulated within the Tigrai community for a decade, Tigrigna speakers could not understand them. But thanks to the new Tigrigna Bible translation, 4.5 million Tigrai people now have access to God’s Word in a dialect they clearly understand.

“The people of Tigrai [now] . . . have the Holy Bible in their mother tongue,” says Project Coordinator of the Tigrigna Bible translation Endrias Kacharo. “The Bible Society of Ethiopia expresses its deepest appreciation and gratitude to all who have contributed to the success of this work.” Kacharo specifically expressed thanks to American Bible Society’s financial partners for helping Ethiopian Christians access the Bible in a language that speaks to their hearts. 

Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
