complete verse (Acts 26:18)

Following are a number of back-translations of Acts 26:18:

  • Uma: “I send you(s) to go open their eyes, and to lead them [implied, by the hand] from the darkness here to my light; so they will be freed from the control of the King of Evil-ones and be controlled by God; so that their sins are forgiven and they will become the portion of God because of their belief in Me.'” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “I am telling you to go to figuratively open their eyes in order that they will change-over from darkness to light, from the hold of the leader of demons to the hold of God, and in order also that their sins will be forgiven if they trust in me,’ Isa said, ‘and they will be included with the people chosen of God.’ ‘” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And that which I’ll cause you to tell them, it can be the thing that will remove their blindness of believing so that they can also get away from the darkness and transfer to the light, which is to say, to the true doctrine. And by means of this, they can get away from Satan’s control over them and they can put themselves under the authority of the true God. And their sins can be forgiven by means of their believing in me, and they can become also believers in God.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “I will send you (singular) so that their blindness concerning me will be removed so that they will turn-their-backs-on evil and their minds will be illumined. And if/when they turn-their-backs-on Satanas’ ruling-over them and turn-to God to believe in me, their sins will be forgiven, and they will be counted among those whom God has chosen as his people, while-simultaneously they will share-in-enjoying/gaining the good that God is giving them.’ That is what the Lord Jesus told me.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “These ones who aren’t Jews are the ones you will teach so that they will be able to open their eyes, for now it’s like they are blind. Teach them so that they can get out from the darkness of sin and from the control of Satanas, and move into the light which God will give, which is that they will then submit to him. For if they truly believe-in/obey me, their sins will be forgiven and they can be included with the people who have been chosen and separated out by God as his people!”” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
