complete verse (2 Timothy 3:6)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Timothy 3:6:

  • Uma: “Some of them take teaching that is not true to other people’s houses, and they deceive women whose faith is weak so that those women believe their teaching. Those women have many sins, and many are the desires of their hearts that control them.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “There are men like that who go inside a person’s house and they deceive the women who are easily influenced. They are easily persuaded because their thinking is troubled because of their many sins and they are easily carried-away/influenced by their greedy-desires.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Some of those are the men who go into houses to teach and control women who are no good. Women like this are afraid because of the many sins they have committed, however there are also many evil things which they want.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because some of them are going to the various-houses to make-friends with the residents so that they will then talk-glibly-to women who are easily persuaded so that they will follow what they are teaching. These women, they are burdened with their piled-up sins, and they are easily incited (lit. pushed) by the many kinds of evil that they want/like.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “There are included among these people those who, what they do is, they go up into houses to gently-talk the householder woman into believing/going-along-with this false teaching of theirs. Well some are easily defeated by them, those who are lacking in understanding, who are drowning in sin and are easily caused to fall (into sin) through indulging desires which are not good.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Because these are people who already in some of the houses have spoiled the faith of all who live in those houses. First of all they deceive the women with their lying teachings. They look for women who are depressed because of their sins and don’t know what to do about their sins. These they deceive.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
