Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Peter 3:7:

  • Uma: “And the sky and world that is at this time he is taking-care-of with just his word also, in order that it be destroyed with fire. Now the sky and world he is still taking care of until the Deciding Day comes. At that time God will punish the people who do not submit to him.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “But God has also spoken that the sky and earth now will be burnt when the day comes when he judges the people who don’t fear God and they will all perish/be destroyed.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And as for that Word of God with which He created long ago, by means of it He has prepared already the heaven and the earth so that He might destroy them with fire in the future on the day when He investigates and punishes people who have not respected Him.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Likewise by-means-of his command, he watches-over/guards the earth that exists now and what is above until the day he has designated/established when he will burn (them), likewise also the day when-he-will-judge the collective-people who have no thoughts for him so that they will be punished forever.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “And well, it really will come again, through the power again of his word, that he will again destroy not just the world but also the sky/heaven also, for then he will burn it. This destruction is being held in store for the day of judging, when he will punish the people who are always opposing his will so that they won’t be able to stand.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
