complete verse (Acts 19:9)

Following are a number of back-translations of Acts 19:9:

  • Uma: “But there were several with hard hearts, they did not want to believe. In their meeting, they rejected the Teaching of the Lord Yesus. So, Paulus and the followers of the Lord Yesus no longer met in that house of prayer. They left, going to meet in the house of Tiranus. That house of Tiranus was a big house that was usually used as a gathering house. Every day Paulus exchanged words with people who met there.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “But the others, their heads were hard and they did not believe. They spoke yet evil of that teaching in front of the people. Therefore Paul left that prayer-house and took with him the ones trusting in Isa. And every day he was there teaching/preaching to the people in the school of Tirannus.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And as for some, their breaths were hard, and they would not believe. Very bad were their words there in the church rejecting the system of believing which our Lord gave. Therefore Paul left them and he took with him those who had become disciples of Jesus, and every day Paul got them together in the house of Tyrannus which had become a study place so that they might study the word of God.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “But there were others whose minds had-become-stubborn (lit. hard) who refused to believe, and they spoke-evil-of the faith of the Cristiano to their companions who met-with-them-in-the-congregation. So plural Pablo and those who were following Jesus left (them), and they went to the school of Tirannus. That’s where-Pablo -joined-in-discussions daily” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “But well, some were stubborn (lit. hardened themselves), for they really didn’t want to believe his teaching. They were even belittling/insulting the way/trail of salvation in the presence of everyone. When Pablo observed that they were doing like that, he left them. He separated the believers (from the others), and they moved to a big house which was the teaching-place of a person called Tirano. And then every day, there now is where Pablo was teaching the people.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
