Afar is a Lowland East Cushitic language spoken by a about
1 million people in Ethiopia, and by a further 460,000 or so people
in Djibouti and Eritrea. It's closely related to the Saho language.
The Afar alphabet or Qafar Feera was created by Dimis and
Redo, two Afar intellectual nationalists who published their work in
the early 1970s.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word
was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by
him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life,
and the life was the light of men.
