Yao Version of the Scriptures
This language is spoken by the Yaos, occupying the country to the east and south of Lake Nyassa, including the Scotch stations Blantyre and Livingstonia. The Reverend Chauncy Maples, of the Universities' Mission, after working three years at Masasi, in Africa, with bishop Steere, prepared a translation of the gospel of Matthew into that language, which was printed by the British and Foreign Bible Society in London in 1880, at the recommendation of bishop Steere, the translator himself carrying the work through the press.
