complete verse (Acts 2:34)

Following are a number of back-translations of Acts 2:34:

  • Uma: “‘Relatives, it was not Daud who went-up to heaven. But there are words of Daud that foretell the going-up of Yesus to heaven, like this their sound: The Lord God said to my Lord: ‘Sit at my right side,” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Na, it was not Da’ud who ascended to heaven, but/instead he said this, he said, ‘God spoke to my Leader, he said: come sit here at my right hand, here in the most important seat,” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And as for that which David prophesied, he was not talking about his own body, because David was not the one made immortal by God and taken to heaven. There is still another written word of David which says, he says, ‘God said to my Lord,’ he said, ‘You just sit here on my right side” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “There is something that David wrote concerning the one-who-was-raised to heaven that says, ‘The Lord God said to my Lord: Sit-down at my right-side until I defeat your (singular) enemies.’ But what David was-speaking-about, it was not himself, because it was not he who was raised to heaven but rather his Lord who is Jesus.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Of course it wasn’t David who rose up into the sky/heaven. Therefore he wasn’t meaning himself in what he said, which was, ‘God said to my Lord/Chief Cristo, ‘Today you sit down here on my right,” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
