This book is a translation of the New Testament and five Old Testament books into the Binumarien language which is spoken by approximately 1000 people who live 20 nautical miles east of Kainantu in the Eastern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea.
For this edition, a minor revision was done on the 1983 Binumarien New Tesatment and the 2003 publication of Genesis, Exodus, and Psalms. Proverbs and Esther, which were translated since then, are also included. In the revision process, tone makers and dashes were removed from most words for easier reading and some long words were broken into shorter words. In addition, the text has undergone minimal revisions of various kinds. New maps, illustrations, and pictures were included to aid understanding. A topical index was included for Bible study.
To date the Binumarien people continue their efforts towards completing their translation of the full Bible.
