complete verse (Acts 7:43)

Following are a number of back-translations of Acts 7:43:

  • Uma: “You worshipped a lord that called Molokh, and his house you continually carried around with you. You also worshipped the idol that looked like the star Refan. It was those images that you made to worship. That’s why I will allow you to be taken captive, and carried away, as far as the far side of the village ofBabel.’ Those were the words of the Lord God to our ancestors long ago.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “But what you were carrying along was the place-for-keeping the image of your god Molok, and the image in the shape like a star your god Rompa. Those were the images which you made for you to worship. Therefore I will send you away beyond the land of Babilon.'” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “The things you carried around were the place where you caused Moloch to live, the one you worship and also the image of the star which you worship which is Rephan. These are images which you made that you worship. That’s why I am going to have you taken far away there beyond the place Babylon.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “It was certainly not, because what you kept-taking-with-you, it was the tent of the false/imitation god called Moloc and the star-image of the false/imitation god called Refan. Those were the false/imitation gods you made in order that you might worship-them. Therefore I will cause-you -to-be-removed so that you will go to a country that is farther than Babilonia.'” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Proof was, you were carrying around the representations you had made of the created-things which are in the sky, they being what you were worshipping. What I am referring to which you were carrying around were the collapsible little-houses which were where you worshipped the representations of Moloc, and too, that image of Renfan which was made like a star. That’s why I determined that you be attacked, and be taken beyond Babilonia.”” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
