complete verse (2 Timothy 3:8)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Timothy 3:8:

  • Uma: “Those lying teachers, their thinking is crooked and their faith is a lie, with the result that God shoves-away/rejects them. They oppose the true teaching, like Yanes and Yambres opposed the prophet Musa long ago.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Those deceiving people, they are-against/oppose the true teaching. What they think no longer hits the mark and they no longer follow the true teaching. They have joined/copied the doings of Jannes and Jambes, the people who opposed Musa long ago.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “As for those men also, they speak in rejection of the true doctrine. Their minds are astray and their belief in the Lord is a sham. They are like Jannes and Jambres who spoke in rejection against Moses long ago.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “The people who deceive/trick these women, their minds are totally filthy, and their pretend faith is of no account in God’s sight. They oppose the true teaching like Jannais and Jambres opposed Moses previously.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “And these who teach them, what they do is, they oppose this truth, for their minds/thinking have been really made evil. They have no knowledge at all of believing/obeying which is acceptable to God. They’re just like Janes and Jambres, who opposed Moises in the past.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “The lying teachers do as did Jannes and Jambres who opposed the word spoken by Moses. Also like them are the ones I am telling you about. The true word is opposed by them. They are men with evil thoughts. It is not true that they follow the faith which we have.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
