Following are a number of back-translations of Acts 15:11:

  • Yakan: “Don’t. We (incl.) trust in Isa the Lord and we (incl.) are set free from our (incl.) sins because he loves and pities us (incl.). Likewise also the people from other tribes.'” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Surely you believe, brethren, that as for us Jews, our being freed from punishment is just like their being freed from punishment, that is, the people who aren’t Jews, because it’s only because of the Lord Jesus’ kindness to us.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Please remember that we believe we are saved by-means-of the Lord Jesus’ grace/mercy, and likewise also with them,’ Pedro said.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “On the contrary, we are sure that, through the grace the Lord Jesus, we will be saved because of our believing and trusting in him. Well, as for them, it’s like that too.'” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
