complete verse (Romans 15:4)

Following are a number of back-translations of Romans 15:4:

  • Uma: “All that was written long ago in the Holy Book was written to teach us. From the teaching we get from the Holy Book we become enduring/lasting in difficulties and our hearts are fired-up, so we are strong to hope in God.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “All that God caused to be written in the holy-book long ago is for teaching us (incl.) so that we (incl.) know how to endure when in suffering/difficulties and so that our (incl.) livers are encouraged and our expectation/hope in God does not move.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “For anything that was written long ago in the word of God, the reason it was caused to be written was so that we might be taught; for by means of the word of God, we are taught to endure hardship and we are advised so that our expecting good things to happen in the future might not be removed.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “I remind you of this that was written, because all that God caused-to-be-written back then was written so that we might learn-from-it. Because due to God’s word, our minds are made-strong and we are able to endure hardship so that we will persist in hoping for what God will give in-the-future.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “What all is written in the Holy Book was written in order for us to study and know about the word it says. This word which the Holy Book says, upon our understanding it, strengthens us to endure what we go through. Because we know that it will happen according to the word which is written.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
