Cebuano Bible – Bugna Version

The complete Cebuano Bible was first published in 1917. This Bible is published today as Ang Biblia, Cebuano by the Philippine Bible Society. Two separate versions are available; the Bugna version contains the original New Testament from 1917.

The Cebuano language has changed markedly over the past 100 years. The Bugna translation’s old-fashioned spelling, vocabulary, and grammar are not always readily understandable. But the text remains usually very accurate and it is based on the Textus Receptus, very close to the Byzantine Text of the New Testament. The Bugna New Testament, with certain updates and with only occasional corrections, provides a trustworthy text for preaching and worship.
