Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Peter 2:6:

  • Uma: “So also God punished the villagers of Sodom and Gomora long ago for they were wrong/guilty, he destroyed their villages with fire, so that his punishing of their villages would be an example to people who do not want to submit to him.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “In old times God also burned the town Sodom and the town Gomora to punish the people there because they were very sinful, so that there would be a lesson/an example for the other people who don’t fear God.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “God also punished long ago the people in the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah. The only inhabitants there whom He saved were Lot and company, for Lot, by contrast, was righteous. Lot was tormented as he thought about the filthy behaviour of his law-breaking companions. Day after day it was evil behaviour which he could hear about and coud see, and because of that his breath became very painful. And because of those very wicked people, God burned their towns so that everyone might understand what His punishment is going to be in the future on those peopple who will not obey His commands.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Remember also God’s punishment of those who resided in Sodoma and Gomorra. Because God burned them and their towns until they turned-into-ashes so that that would be a warning to all who have no thoughts for God.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Well surely-you-remember, he also sentenced the people of Sodoma and Gomorra to judgment, because they were also excessively doing sin? God really burned up those cities. He did this so that people of whatever time would observe/realise what would happen to them as long as they too are always putting far from their minds the will of God.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Also God brought to and end the city of Sodom and the city of Gomorrah. He burned them until they remained mere ashes. God caused this disaster in order that the peole who would live afterwards and lived evilly would know that this is a punishment they would come to.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
