This edition is based on the original Hawaiian Bible produced in the 19th century. Each word, phrase, sentence and passage were considered in its Biblical context and respelled to include contemporary Hawaiian spelling. 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 is the third publication of work by Partners in Development Foundation’s Hawaiian Bible Project.
