In the weak field approximation, gravitational field equations of new general relativity with arbitrary parameters are examined. Assuming a conservation law ∂µ Tµν = 0 of the energy-momentum tensor Tµν for matter fields in addition to the usual one ∂ν Tµν =0, we show that the linearized gravitational field equations are decomposed into equations for a Lorenz scalar field and symmetric and antisymmetric Lorentz tensor fields.
