62 languages and counting

janfeb2017dailytextscoversFor 2017, three new languages were added to the large number of editions of the Moravian Daily Texts: Syriac Aramaic, Tok Pisin (a language spoken in Papua New Guinea) and Vietnamese.

Local church groups, often working with partners in Germany, took the initiative to translate, publish and distribute their version of the Moravian Daily Texts. All three projects received a start-up grant from the Moravian Church in Germany. The Vietnamese Daily Text book is published in two biannual installments. The Daily Texts from Papua New Guinea are printed in a print-run of 500 copies under the title: “Givim Mipela Kaikai Bilong Dispela De” (Give Us Today Our Daily Bread). The Syriac Aramaic version is still in translation.

The Moravian Daily Texts currently appear in 62 languages worldwide.

Moravian Daily Texts


Saturday, March 24 — Psalm 38:17–22
Exodus 29:31–30:16; Matthew 26:14–30

The eyes of the Lord range throughout the entire earth, to strengthen those whose heart is true to him. 2 Chronicles 16:9

And a woman, having learned that Jesus was eating in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster jar of ointment. She stood behind him at his feet, weeping, and began to bathe his feet with her tears and to dry them with her hair. Then she continued kissing his feet and anointing them with the ointment. Luke 7:37–38

Friend of sinners, thank you for the gift of grace. Cause us to see more clearly the design you have for us to share this grace with all people—including are neighbors and friends. Grant new opportunities today to share and listen for your love. Amen.
