Maori Bible – Te Paipera Tapu, Tru Tone RED -

This reformatted edition reproduces the text of the current edition of Te Paipera Tapu (first published in 1952) in an enhanced format for the modern Māori language reader. Macrons have been added to indicate vowel length, speech marks have been added and punctuation carefully revised. Paragraphing has also been introduced and section headings added.

Bible Society’s Translation Services Director, Stephen Pattemore says "Reformatting the existing text greatly increases its readability and promotes its use".

It has taken many people, including translators, checkers and Maori leaders, more than ten years to complete this work, and judging by the growing demand for the reformatted New Testament, Bible Society expects Te Paipera Tapu will also be well received.

This edition of Te Paipera Tapu continues a long tradition of publication of the Holy Scriptures in Te Reo Māori.
