Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Peter 2:17:

  • Uma: “As for those lying teachers, God has prepared a place for them that is pitch-black. They are like dry wells and like clouds driven by a big wind but that do not send down rain.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “The deceiving teachers are like dry wells. They are also like clouds blown/carried by the wind. There is no use in/for their teaching and it does not give good to people. God has already prepared a dwelling place for them in great darkness.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Now as for those people who teach lies, they are like a well that is dried up. They are like a cloud which the wind blows away for they are no good to anyone. God has prepared a very dark place for them in hell.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “These who are teaching what is not true, there is a darkest place that God has prepared for them to stay forever. Because they are compared to a spring that has dried-up or clouds that are blown-along by a swift wind.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “These teachers of lies, they are worthless people. For what they are like is a spring blocked-off-inside and clouds which are useless for they are being driven by the wind. But they will be punished by God in the pitch-black darkness which he has already reserved (for them).” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “These men do not do any good whatever. You see a well without water, or a rain cloud that doesn’t rain, thus are their words. These will be punished in deep darkness forever.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
