Farsi فارسی Language / Iranian Bible
Persian (Farsi) is an ancient language spoken by over sixty million people, mainly in Iran, formerly called Persia. According to Acts 2:9 there were Persians, Parthians and Medes among the very first new Christian converts at Pentecost. Since then there has been a continuous presence of Christians amongst the Persians, initially as part of the Nestorian Church of the East. The Bible was translated into Persian by Henry Martyn, a contemporary of William Carey, who translated the New Testament. In 1811 he journeyed into Persia and sent a copy of his translation of the New Testament to the Shah. It was published in 1815. The complete Bible translation was completed in 1838. A revision was published in 1896, now known as the Old Version (OV).

The Henry Martyn translation was revised by Robert Bruce to utilize Persian language that was more current. This was published in 1895, although it is also said to have been published in 1896. This is commonly used and known as the Old Persian Version (OPV), Standard Version or Tarjumeh-ye Ghadeem (ترجمه قدیم).
