complete verse (Genesis 31:15)

Following are a number of back-translations as well as a sample translation for translators of Genesis 31:15:

  • Newari: “Does he not deal with us like outsiders? He has not only sold us, he has even used up the money that was paid for us.” (Source: Newari Back Translation)
  • Hiligaynon: “We (excl.) are now different people in his sight. He sold us (excl.) and he has- now -finished spending our (excl.) price.” (Source: Hiligaynon Back Translation)
  • English: “He treats us as though we were foreigners! Your working for him all these years was like a payment that you gave him as a price for us, but we will not inherit any of that money that he got as a price for us. He has spent it all!” (Source: Translation for Translators)
