complete verse (1 Thessalonians 2:14)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Thessalonians 2:14:

  • Uma: “We know this, relatives, for what happened to the Kristen people in the land of Yudea who worship God, that also is what happened to you. You were persecuted by your own fellow townspeople, just the same as our (inc) relatives who are Kristus Yesus’s portion in Yudea were persecuted by their fellow Yahudi people.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “You, my brothers, you are now like the people trusting in Isa Almasi who are there in Yahudiya. You have also been put-into-difficulties by your fellow countrymen as they are put-into-difficulties by their fellow Yahudi.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Those believers in Jesus Christ who belong to God in the province of Judea, you inadvertently imitated them. For just like their fellow Jews persecuted them, your companions also who were not Jews persecuted you.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “It can be seen that you truly believed, because what happened to you is the same as what happened to the congregations of God’s people in Judea who are joined-to Jesu Cristo. Because as for them, their countrymen the Jews were persecuting them, and as for you also, it was your countrymen.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For isn’t it so, siblings in believing, that you have now become the same as the taga Judea who are believers in God, those who have truly caused themselves to be united/tied-together with Cristo Jesus? For you are being caused hardship by your fellow-countrymen because of your believing/obeying, just like those taga Judea who were caused hardship by their fellow-countrymen who were the Jews.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “You have suffered, brothers, because your townspeople were angry with you. You went through what the believers went through who worship God in the land of Judea. Because they also suffered in that their fellow Jews were angry with them.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
