complete verse (Acts 7:35)

Following are a number of back-translations of Acts 7:35:

  • Uma: “‘So, Musa who was rejected by the Israel people the other day [lit., yesterday], he after all was the one that the Lord God ordered to go free the Israel people. At first they rejected him, they said: ‘Who raised you(s) to become a leader who decides our (excl.) matters?’ Yet he was really the one called by God with the lips of the angel that spoke to him from inside the bush. He really was the one the God raised to be the leader to free them.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “‘Na,’ Estepan said, ‘it was this Musa hep whom the people of Isra’il had rejected. They defied him. They said to him, ‘Who gave you authority to be leader over us (excl.)? Why should you be the one to judge us (excl.)?’ It was Musa hep whom God told to be the leader and the-one-to-set-free our (incl.) forefathers,’ Estepan said. ‘And he was helped by the angel whom he saw at the flaming puhung tree.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Now this Moses,’ said Stephen to the leaders, ‘already the Jews had rejected his help to them, for they had said to him, ‘Who gave you the authority to be the Datu over us?’ By means of the angel who appeared to him in a plant, Moses was sent by God, and he made Moses the ruler who would be the one to set the Jews free.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “‘This Moses, his companions rejected-him at first saying, ‘Is it indeed-the-case that (sarc. RQ) you (singular) have authority to rule-over and judge us (excl.)?’ But it was he however whom God sent to rule-over and set-them -free, while-simultaneously the angel who had appeared to him in the burning tree helped-him.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Esteban further said, ‘Well, that Moises whom they didn’t acknowledge, for they said, ‘Who set you up as our (excl.) leader and judge?’, he indeed was the one whom God set up as leader who would release them from that slavery of theirs. He was able to do this through the help of the Angel of God whom he saw there at the bush.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
