IsiZulu Bible translation



To make a Bible translation available in today's isiZulu.


  • The translation of the isiZulu Bible, currently used by most Zulu people, was completed over 50 years ago. Continuous development in the language, combined with additional development in among others Bible translation, has necessitated a new translation.
  • The translation done from the Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts is virtually completed and currently some supplementary material is being prepared. The work of the Review Committee has been concluded. The final manuscript will be handed over to the Bible Society in 2019 with the view to publish the Bible in mid-2020.
  • The translation has a website where proof translations can be read for comment.


Expected impact
  • Considering that this Bible translation will be translated into the language of today, the youth especially will understand the Bible message better.
