Select parts of the holy Bible, for the use of the negro slaves, in the British West-India islands

Front Cover
Law and Gilbert, 1807
The bible itself is an edited edition of the King James Bible – there is no extra material in the Bible, just redacted passages. This version of the Bible excludes 90 percent of the Old Testament as well as 50 percent of the New Testament. Absent are all of the Psalms, that talk about hope for God’s liberation from oppression, as well as the entire Book of Revelation.
