  • Uma: “There were several Yahudi people from Yudea who believed in Lord Yesus who went to the town of Antiokhia. Those Yahudi people taught the followers of Yesus in Antiokhia, they taught them saying to them: ‘If you are not circumcised according to the custom in the Law of Musa, you will definitely not be freed from the punishment of your sins!'” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Then there were some people from Yahudiya who went to Antiyok. They taught the ones trusting in Isa there. They said, ‘You cannot be saved if you are not circumcised as commanded by Musa.'” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “At that time there were Jewish believers from the province of Judea who went to the town of Antioch. And as for these people, there was that which they taught to the believers who were not Jews who were from Antioch. They said, ‘If you do not obey what was commanded to us (incl.) in the law which Moses left behind that you be circumcised, you cannot be freed from punishment.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “When that was so, there were those who came-from Judea who went to Antiok to teach those who believed. They said, ‘It is not possible that you will be saved if you don’t have-yourselves-circumcised to obey the custom that Moses taught.'” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Well, when they were now there at Antioquia some people arrived who came from Judea. When they arrived, they began to teach those who were not Jews saying, ‘Brethren, unless you have yourselves circumcized, that being what is said in the laws of Moises, you won’t be saved.'” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
