complete verse (2 Thessalonians 2:2)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Thessalonians 2:2:

  • Uma: “Continuing on, relative, we want to say to you a word or two, saying what will happen when our (inc) Lord Yesus Kristus comes to gather us (inc) all together with him. There are people who say to you that the day of the Lord’s coming has already arrived. But those words of theirs are not true. Maybe there were persons who said the Holy Spirit told them that, or there are persons who taught you teaching like that. Or maybe there really was someone who said that there was a letter from me that says the Day of the Lord has arrived. But we really-really request, relatives, don’t be easily confused or have uncertain hearts, because that news is not true.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “don’t be easily troubled in your thinking if you hear stories that the day of Isa Almasi’s return to judge the people in the world has already arrived. If you hear that somebody has spread talk/words/speech that are reportedly caused to be spoken by God (prophecy) about this, or if they say that we (excl.) reportedly said so, or that there is reportedly a letter from us (excl.) about this, don’t really believe it.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “We beg you that you do not become easily confused or afraid when you hear the news that God’s day of punishing mankind has already come. Do not be confused about this even if they say it is the Word of the Inspired Person, or if they say we (excl.) have said it, or if they say it is in a letter which comes from us.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “You should not be easily upset (lit. minds disrupted) or worried at what they have-been-rumoring that there is something we (excl.) have predicted or said or written that the day of the Lord’s coming again has already arrived.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Please don’t panic or agitate your mind/thinking over news which says, the time when the Lord will return has now been reached. Yes indeed, don’t believe it, even though someone says this news was put into his mind (by God), or it is teaching which he heard or read in a letter which he says came from us (excl.).” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “If someone tells you that now is the time that the Lord will arrive, they will say, do not be disturbed at heart. Do not believe what they say even though they say that God has inspired them to say it, or if they tell you that I wrote thus in a letter to be told to you.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
