Haggai

WE HONOR THE TRANSLATORS:
 
In tribute, we are posting links to their final resting places
(memorials we discovered that were posted online by someone else)
and we hope you will honor them as well

Why is Haggai important?
 
The tale is tragic and riveting:
 
A nation is overrun by invaders, who decimate them and take the tiny group of survivors into exile for decades.

They return to find foreign settlers in their homeland, and their attempts to restore their traditional way of life stalls.

Is this Native American History 101?

Sounds like it-- BUT-- this all happened over 2500 years ago an ocean away.

The Jewish remnant had returned from Babylon and began the rebuilding of the walls of the city.  They built the walls in just 52 days, weapons in one hand and tools in the other.

After the walls were secured, they began the building of their own homes and left the temple, the dwelling place of God, in ruins.

Sixteen long years passed and the Temple still lay in desolation, unused and unusable.

Haggai the prophet arrives on the scene and points out the shallowness of their dedication to their Creator.

Their failure to put their Maker first had brought a curse upon their harvests and their lives.

Haggai wanted them to see that Creator had given divine leadership to the obedient leaders whom they should follow.

They didn't think it was the right time to rebuild.  Haggai declared that NOW is the time.

Haggai reminded them that although they were no longer an independent nation, they were still God's people.
as stated by one author:
"Although they were not a nation anymore, they were still God's People" ~Evelyn L. Meeks Verner, BRel., MA.

Scanned copies of HAGGAI in Cherokee available through the gracious loan from the Ries Family
Negotiations are underway to place the original copy of Haggai with the Cherokee People.

 
 
Syllabary Translation:  Public Domain, Anna Gritts Kilpatrick & Jack Frederick Kilpatrick, syllabary was transcribed by Cherokee Bible Project Volunteers, from book purchased in Bartlesville, OK through Abe Bookstore, 2015
Phonetics:  Cherokee Bible Project 2015
English Version:  KJV (Public Domain)
 
It all started with a check sent to me for my birthday.
This was followed by another check from an Alabama friend.
 
Those funds were used to purchase a copy of "HAGGAI" from a bookseller.
The book seller was selling the copy on behalf of the Bartlesville Library in Oklahoma.
The book was translated and hand written by Anna Gritts Kilpatrick and Jack Frederick Kilpatrick.
It was published in 1965 without a copyright and is now in the public domain.
 
(The Publisher listed on the cover was the Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University)
 
Thanks to a dedicated volunteer (Dale Ries), the book was scanned and preserved by him.
Plans are underway to loan the original copy to an interested party.
 
(Why did we scan it first? that way, we did not have to hold the actual book when we re typed it on the keyboard)
 
Then Haggai was worked on.
We typed it out by hand -using a Cherokee keyboard and the Cherokee Unicode or modern Cherokee font.
 
We then typed it into phonetics.
Then we compared that to the scanned copy from the Bartlesville, OK Library.
 
The Book was transcribed by Dale aka Walosi Ries and ᏦᎭᎾ ᏣᏑᏰᏓ ᏫᏍ.
 
Transliteration into Unicode font was done by Dale aka Walosi Ries and ᏦᎭᎾ ᏣᏑᏰᏓ ᏫᏍ.
 
It is NOW transliterated from the handwritten Syllabary into Phonetics. 
 
The syllabary is now formatted in the modern Unicode.
 
Proofreading was done by Brian Wilkes and he also undertook the enormous job of editing and compiling it so it could be placed into printed copies for those who prefer paper over websites.
