The New Testament of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, in Sgau Karen

translated by Francis Mason

This is the second edition of an 19th-century translation of the New Testament into Sgau Karen, an indigenous language of Burma (Myanmar). The translation was made by Francis Mason, an Anglo-American missionary, and this edition was published in Maulmain in 1850.

Files for the various New Testament books have been posted separately at the Internet Archive, and are linked below in their usual order. The Internet Archive copies also have additional modern commentary appended by digitizers and reviewers.

This is a "meta-book", which stitches together separate files elsewhere on the Web as they appeared in a previously published book. It is subject to removal if someone produces an integrated edition. If that happens, The Online Books Page will point to the integrated version.
