How Many People Have NO Bible Ever Written In Their Language? The Answer May SHOCK You
Ironically, the Bible is the most shoplifted books in the world. Weird, huh? But there are still many people who have no way of getting a hold of a Bible in their own tongue because no such Bibles exist.
According to Wycliffe Bible Translators, there are as many as 180 million people in the world that speak a language that no Bible has ever been translated into. That's equivalent to well over half the population of the U.S. or equivalent to the combined populations of the 12 most populous states — California, Texas, Florida, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina, Michigan, New Jersey, and Virginia.
Amazingly, though, there is currently translation work going on for 2,300 languages. But there is plenty of more work to do, with 1,800 languages still untouched with a written Word of God.
Please pray for the vital and diligent work of Bible translators.
