complete verse (Acts 26:20)

Following are a number of back-translations of Acts 26:20:

  • Uma: “I announce to all people the news that says, that we must repent from our sins and offer/turn-over our lives to God, and we must show with our behavior that we have really repented from our sins. First I preached this news in the town of Damsyik, after that in Yerusalem and all over the land of Yudea. And I also went to people who are not Yahudi people carrying that news.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “So-then I taught/preached beginning there in Damaskus, then in Awrusalam, and then there also in the different places in Yahudiya and including to people who were not Yahudi. I taught/preached-to them all that they must/should regret and let-go of their sins and they should now follow/obey God. And they should also show in their doings that their liver had really changed.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “I went first to the town of Damascus and then to Jerusalem. And then I went through all the province of Judea, and I went also to the people who are not Jews. I told them that they must give up their sins and they must believe in God and they must show by means of what they do that it is really true that they are giving up their bad doings.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because I went and preached to the many-people that they repent of their sins to turn-to God and to also do the good that would make-known that they had truly repented. That’s what I have-been-preaching beginning-from Damascus, then in Jerusalem, then in the various-towns here in the province Judea, and then also to the Gentiles.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “The first place I taught in was Damasco, and then Jerusalem. From there I went all over the whole district of Judea and then I went to the lands of people who aren’t Jews. I taught them to repent and let go of their sins, and submit now to God, and then to do good deeds which testify that they have now repented of and let go of their previous deeds which weren’t good.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
