Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 3:1:

  • Yakan: “My brothers trusting in Almasi, you also were chosen by God being made his people. Think about Isa. He was sent here by God to us (incl.) and he was made High/Leading Priest of our (incl.) religion.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And because of this, my brothers in the faith who are also invited by God to live in the future in Heaven, just think about Jesus. He is the one God sent here to the earth, so that He might become the high priest who helps us in our submitting ourselves to God.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Therefore my brothers whom God has chosen as his people and has called to join him in heaven, let us think about Jesus, because as concerning the faith that we confess, he is the one whom God sent as his Apostle and the Highest Priest who represents us to God.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Now therefore, my siblings who have been like set apart by God, you whom he determined would be able to stay/reside in heaven in the future, it would be good if you think about (lit. walk your minds on) this Jesus. According to the truth which we are believing/obeying, he was the one God caused to come here, and he is the Most-important Priest who is standing up for us.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Listen, my brothers, God called you to be his people. And now consider very well about the work of Jesus Christ. He is God’s representative here on earth and he has become the high priest of God where God lives in order to help us. Because in the word which we believe, this is apparent.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
