Bible translations into Uzbek

The Bible has been fully translated into Uzbek. The full text was made publicly available for the first time September 29, 2011.

Scripture portions were first translated in 1886, with Gospels translated by M. Ostrumoff, Russian Inspector of Schools. The proof-sheets were revised by Dr. Radlof, Rev. A. Amirkhaniantz, of Tiflis, and Dr. Sauerwein. Because of orthography issues it took a long time for their work to be published, Luke was only published in 1890, the Four Gospels being completed in 1891.[1]

In 1917 the Gospels were published in the Uzbek-Arabic script and an affiliate of the International Bible Society set up in Tashkent the capital.[2]

During the period of Soviet rule little further translations were made.

Following Independence in 1991 the Bible Society, locally called 'Parvus', was reconstituted.[2] With the help of the United Bible Societies and Institute for Bible Translation it began to translate the whole Bible into modern Uzbek using the Cyrillc alphabet. After 2000 most portions were published in both Cyrillic and Latin scripts.

Jehovah's Witnesses released a translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures, the New Testament, in modern Uzbek in 2010 and a translation of the entire Bible, Муқаддас Китоб — Янги дунё таржимаси, in 2017.

Аллоҳ инсониятни шу қадар қаттиқ севдики, ҳатто улар учун ягона Ўғлини берди. Токи унга ишонган ҳар бир киши ҳалок бўлмасин, балки мангу ҳаётга эга бўлсин.
