complete verse (Acts 18:2)

Following are a number of back-translations of Acts 18:2:

  • Uma: “In Korintus, Paulus met a Yahudi man named Akwila. The town of his birth was in the land of Pontus. This Akwila with Priskila his wife, had just arrived in the town of Korintus themselves, because they had just moved from the land of Italia. This move of theirs from the land of Italia, was because there was a command of King Klaudius expelling all the Yahudi people from the town of Roma in the land of Italia. So, when Paulus arrived in Korintus, he went to visit this Akwila and Priskila,” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “There he met with a Yahudi named Akila, born in the land of Pontus. That Akila had newly arrived in Korinto from the country Italiya together with his wife, Pirisila. They left Italiya because King Kalaudi had commanded all the Yahudi to leave Roma, the big city in Italiya. Then Paul went to visit Akila and company.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And there he came upon two Jews, a married couple from Pontus, Aquila and his wife Priscilla. They had just arrived there from Italy because there was a law of King Claudius causing all of the Jewish people to go out from the town of Rome. Paul went to visit them,” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “There he came-upon a Jew from-Pontus named Aquila and his spouse Priscilla. They had-just-arrived from Italia, because Emperor Claudius had commanded that all Jews leave Roma which was the capital of Italia. Pablo went to go visit them,” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “There he met/saw a man who was a Jew named Aquila. As for that person, Ponto was where he was born but he had moved to Roma, the main city in Italia. From there, he and his wife Priscila had moved because of the law sent down by the Impiradur Claudio, saying, ‘All Jews in Roma must now leave.’ Therefore they were now there in Corinto for that’s where they’d moved to. It wasn’t yet long since they had arrived there. After Pablo had met him, he went to their house.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
