Old Testament in Maori
Early Maori language publication of the Old Testament book Proverbs to Malachi.
The third and final volume of the BFBS [British and Foreign Bible Society] edition of the Old Testament; the earlier volumes were the Hexateuch (1848, no. 352) and Judges-Psalms (1855, no. 455), an interim edition until the complete Bible was published in 1868.
The Māori are the indigenous Polynesian people of mainland New Zealand. Māori originated with settlers from eastern Polynesia, who arrived in New Zealand in several waves of waka (canoe) voyages between roughly 1320 and 1350.
