An Testament Nowyth


Translated by Nicholas Williams


The text of this New Testament is that of An Beybel Sans 'The Holy Bible in Cornish' of 2011. The translation was based upon the Greek together with a collation of other versions. Where passages of the New Testament were forthcoming in traditional Cornish, they were incorporated into the translation to increase its authenticity. Wherever possible, personal and geographical names are those attested in traditional Cornish. The spelling used is Standard Cornish, which aims both to follow the norms of traditional Cornish orthography while being wholly phonetic. The translation aims to be both idiomatic, accurate and easy to read.
