complete verse (Colossians 1:5)

Following are a number of back-translations of Colossians 1:5:

  • Uma: “You believe and love like that, because you trust/hope-in God, you wait for what he has stored for you in heaven, like you heard about in the Good News that was announced to you. The Good is indeed true,” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Formerly/Earlier when you heard the message which is true, which is the good news about Isa Almasi, you really were already expecting/hoping that there is something stored-up/kept by God for you there in heaven. And that is the underlying-reason that you trust in Isa Almasi and love your fellow-men.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “The reason your faith is strong and your kindness is great is because your expectancy of everything in Heaven that God has prepared for you, it cannot be removed. You heard about this at the time when the true teaching which is the Good News, was preached to you.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “And that faith and love of yours, they stem from what you are expecting which is that you will receive in-the-future what God has reserved/stored-up in heaven for you. You came-to-know concerning this that you are expecting when you heard back then the true message (lit. words) which is the good news.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Your trust and holding dear are like this because you are being-sure-of the good (situation) being stored up for us in heaven, that good (situation) that you became-sure-of through the Good News which is truth which was taught to you in the past.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “I also thank God for all that good he has already determined to give you in heaven. You already know that God will give you this good because this was the message accompanying the good news which was told to you. And this word which was told to you is true.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
