Following are a number of back-translations of Acts 5:21:

  • Uma: “So, early in the morning, they indeed went to the House of God and they taught the people. At that time also, the Big Priest and his companions called all the leaders of the Yahudi to gather to make a big meeting of the Yahudi religion. When they were all there, they said to their workers: ‘Go to the jail, get those apostles of the Lord Yesus there [out of sight] and bring them here.'” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “They obeyed the command of the angel and very-early-in-the-morning (subu-subu) they went to the temple to teach. Then the high priest and his companions called the elders of the nation of Isra’il to gather. They were the council members. Afterwards they commanded the police to go to the prison to fetch the commissioned ones.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And when dawn came they went to the church and they taught. And the High Priest came to the church and also his companions, and the high priest ordered that all of the elders and the leaders of the Jews should gather together. And there were also some whom he sent to the prison to bring the apostles.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “When it got-light, they obeyed what the angel had said. They entered the Temple and began to teach. A little later, the highest priest and his companions arrived at their meeting-place, and they called all the elders and other leaders of the Jews so-that they would meet-with (them). Then they sent police to go to the prison to fetch the apostles.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Therefore, when day came, they truly did go to the Templo and taught again. Well, those who had had them arrested, that Most-important Priest and his companions the Saduceo, they sent for all their other companions, as many as were members of the Sanedrin, they being the leaders of the Jews. When they were now gathered, they then sent to have the apostles brought from the jail.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
