Does the Fijian bible needs to be retranslated into a more contemporary and mordenised version of the Fijian language that is easy for the average person to understand?

Has the fijian bible to some extent  because of its lack of depth robbed us of the richness of God's word.

 

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: (John 1:12) KJV

 

Ia ko ira kecega sa vakabauti koya, sa solia vei ira ko koya me ra yaco rawa me ra luve ni Kalou, vei ira sa vakabauta na yacana.

 

Power -- Exousia (Greek), it means power, right, liberty, jurisdiction and strength. Simply  the ability or strength with which one is endued, which he either possesses or exercises.
