complete verse (2 Peter 2:13)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Peter 2:13:

  • Uma: “The punishment that will strike them will be in-line-with their evil behavior. The behavior of those lying religion teachers is very shameful. Even during the daytime they really like to follow their own desires [lit., desires of their own bodies]. At your meetings they eat together with you, and they satisfy their own desires. Because of their character others end up disparaging you, for they say that your character is the same as those lying teachers’.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “The bad they have done to their companions will come back to them. Even in daytime they are happy to indulge their body’s desire. They only bring shame to you and they like/are-happy to deceive you because they join you in eating your feast but their doings are bad.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “The punishment which they will have to endure in the future will be very painful just like the painful things they caused people to endure. The amusement which they like is to satisfy, even while it is still daytime, all kinds of filthy desires of their bodies. You are ashamed of them, and they are the reason you are criticized. For even when they eat with you at your gatherings, what they really like is to tell you lies.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “They will endure the suffering that is the deserved-recompense of the evil they have done. What they enjoy is their fulfilling the evil desires of their bodies, even though it is still daytime. They can-be-compared to stains which make-bad clean clothes, because they are joining you when you eat and take-communion, but simultaneously they are continuing to enjoy their excessive means-of-happiness.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For since they kept doing what was not good, what will be their reward is, they will be subjected to what is not good too. Those people, just so that they can indulge this disgusting desire of theirs, they delight in doing even in the daytime this pleasure of theirs which is disgusting. It’s really a big shame and source-of-negative-criticism, for they join in with you at your meals which include Communion(lit. doing the evening-meal, glossary item). It really pleases them to fool you.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “These people will be punished because of the suffering they cause for their fellowmen. Because they like to do the evil that comes to mind, even in the day time. These people, when they go to the fiestas you have, make the believers be ashamed to see them there. But these do not feel at all bad about the evil they do.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
