Kenehihi : ko te tahi o nga upoko

Ref No: GNZM 5
Date Created: 1827

Selections from Old and New Testaments (Genesis 1-3, John 1, extracts from Exodus 20, Matthew 5, with the Lord’s Prayer and seven hymns) translated into Te Reo.

The primary translator was James Shepherd, but the book was collectively edited by the Committee Missionaries of the Church Mission. 400 copies were printed in Sydney.

The provenance of this book is of interest, as it was once in the possession of Hūtāmate, a student of John King at the first Mission school at Rangihoua, opened by Thomas Kendall, 12 August 1816. Hutamate has signed this copy and added the inscription: “Kura karakia – School Kingi – Nona ano tenei pukapuka” (Mission school – King’s school – This book belongs to him [King]).

An additional inscription provided by Grey’s states that, “Bishop Williams tells me that this book was printed in November 1827.  On from page 5 to 8 will be seen the water mark – Alton Mill 1826. I have also Hūtāmate’s copybook written at Mr Kings school from February 20, 1826 to May 9th, 1826 in exactly the same hand as his name in this book”  The copy book mentioned is part of  GNZMMSS 19.
