Ethiopian Bible to English?

Does anyone know whether there is anyone working toward translating the Bible of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church into English?

I believe the text of the Bible in Geez may preserve ancient text traditions which would be beneficial toward better understanding the Bible.

It would be nice to have it at the very least for reference purposes.

Nope, it doesn't help. I guess the Geez text of the Bible in English won't be coming out anytime soon.

I recently started doing research on the lost books of the bible. The best that I have found is a series of links provided at the link below. It's not packaged in one book but it's free and most of the links look very credible and nicely organized. Not to mention they are available online and free ;-)

answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20071028042717AAGn1m8
Look at the answer provided by Jim Pettis

Also, I found another forum that mentioned praying for these to be found/translated. We may not have the ability to translate books but we have the power of God and prayer to help us.

I had already seen those posts, but thank you anyway.

What is needed in English and which was only accomplished for the LXX for the first time in English two years ago, is a comprehensive translation of those books into English as a group.

Here's what's lacking:

The Geez text of the Bible in English
The Peshitto text of the Bible in English

Maybe in our lifetimes?

I really hope so. It's amazing no one has yet with the call for translation. I've seen so many people in search of these. Good luck on your search and if you stumble on anything please let me know.

The Ethiopian Orthodox Church has not really made any moves in translating any of their texts into English at the time being.

However, if you are interested, you can check out these translations of Enoch and Jubilees translated from Geez.

Here's why I do not recommend the Richard Laurence translation of the Book of Enoch:

Richard Laurence’s Misfire

In the early 19th century, Richard Laurence was the first to publish a translation of the Book of Enoch in English. It was Laurence’s conviction that the Book of Enoch was greatly disordered and would best be served if his translation re-ordered the passages to the proper sequence he envisioned. He also renumbered the chapters and verses throughout. The result of this as well as his translation work, was less than satisfactory. It was roundly criticised by scholars and became obsolete from the start.

The Laurence translation is still widely available and his chapter numbering and versification are widely different from any other translation that has been published ever since. I have personally witnessed the confusion this can cause. If two persons are discussing and citing passages from Enoch, yet only one of them is using the Laurence translation the results can be confusing. The perception can be created that “there are different versions” of the Book of Enoch. This impression can be especially severe when those who refer to Laurence’s translation do not even realize the versification problem exists.

Instead, I recommend the RH Charles translation. The readability and vivid style of Charles' translation has held up for more than a century.

The Book of Enoch
