complete verse (2 Corinthians 3:14)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Corinthians 3:14:

  • Uma: “And those Yahudi people, their thinking is covered-over as well, they do not understand the purpose of the Lord’s Law. Until this time, when they read the paper/letter(s) of the old Promise, we can say: there is still a veil that covers-up their thinking. Only if they believe in Kristus does their heart become clear [i.e., they understand].” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “At that time the people of Isra’il did not understand, their thoughts/minds were like covered. And even until now they do not understand when the holy-book where God’s first covenant is written is read. The cover of their mind/thoughts will only be removed when they trust in Isa Almasi and then they can understand.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “For at that time their understanding was covered up also, and this has not changed today, because the understanding of the Jewish people is still covered up. And when they read about the old way of our (incl.) becoming one with God, they cannot understand it. And if some of them believe in Christ, God removes that which covers up their thinking and then finally they can understand.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “But their minds became-hard and they didn’t understand the meaning of what happened to Moses. Because even now, it’s as if the minds of the Judio (henceforth Jews) are covered-over (same root as v. 13) when they read the Old Agreement, for they are not able-to-understand its correct meaning. And what is covering-it-over will not be removed until they join/belong-to Cristo.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “But well their heads were really made-hard. The truth/proof is, right up till now the Jews who are their descendants are just like that, when they read that former initiated-agreement, there is still something veiling, for it’s like the true meaning is like hidden from them. For what-is-causing-this -concealment will only be removed if they believe/obey and have themselves united/tied-together with Cristo.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “The Jews could not understand about this word. Even until now it is the same in that they do not understand about the word. When they study the Holy Book where is written the old agreement which there was before, they do not understand about it. Because only the person who believes in Christ is able to understand well about this word.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
