complete verse (2 John 1:7)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 John 1:7:

  • Uma: “I write this to you, for many deceivers are going-around all over the world. They don’t believe that Yesus is the Redeemer King who became a human. People who are like that, they are deceivers and they are indeed enemies of Kristus.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Many people are teaching which is not true in the places/countries here in the world. These people don’t believe that Isa Almasi came to the earth in a human body. These people are really deceiving. They are already the ones opposing Almasi.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Many have appeared teaching lies here on the earth. They say that, as for Jesus, the one chosen by God to rule, He is not the one who became a human. Anyone who says that, he is a liar and the enemy of Christ.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “I have reminded you of this, because there are many who have come-out/appeared now who are deceiving people. What they are teaching is not true because they do not acknowledge that Jesu Cristo became a true person when he came to this earth. Those like that, they are characteristically-deceiving/lying people who oppose Cristo.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “It’s true, this world/land is really full of misleaders of believing, those people who don’t acknowledge-as-true that as for Jesu-Cristo, he really became a man/human. Those people who are like that, they are the ones who lead astray and who oppose Cristo.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Thus I tell you, because here on earth there are many lying speakers going about. These say that Jesus Christ did not truly become a human. The person who thus says this is a deceiver, and he is the enemy of Christ.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
  • Yatzachi Zapotec: “Many deceivers have gone out from among us and are going about in this world. They say that Jesus Christ is not born a man on this earth. Those people who are deceivers do contrary to Christ.”
  • Eastern Highland Otomi: “This I am telling you, because a lot of deceivers are walking around in the world, who say that God’s Chosen-One didn’t become a person, that is, Jesus. But they are false, and they follow God’s enemy.”
  • Isthmus Zapotec: “There are many who go around in the world and say that Jesus Christ did not become a person (of the world). And one who speaks that way is deceiving and he is an enemy of Christ.” (Source for this and two above: John Beekman in Notes on Translation 12, November 1964, p. 1ff.)
