Following are a number of back-translations of Acts 7:45:

  • Uma: “Some time after that, our ancestors died in that wilderness. And their children brought that worship tent into this land of Kanaan. At that time, God expelled the inhabitants of Kanaan, and Yosua lead the Israel people to win/obtain this land that we dwell in now. So, that worship tent was still in the midst of the Israel people long ago until the time of King Daud.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Then they left that house to their descendants for-many-generations. And our (incl.) forefathers brought it when they and Yussa’ entered into this land, after God had driven away the other nations/tribes that were living here. And that house was still here until-during the time when Da’ud was king.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And a long time after that as for the children of these ancestors of ours, when they inherited that shelter where God lived, they did not abandon it in their following Joshua when they came into this our land. And they came to own this land when God drove out the previous inhabitants here. And the dwelling place of God was still here when David began to rule.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “When Moses died, Josue took-his-place to lead them in their coming to this country. And that-aforementioned Tent which they inherited, they took-it-with-them in their taking-over the land of those who originally/formerly resided here whom God drove-out. And that-aforementioned Tent, it remained in our country until the time of King David.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “It was inherited by their childen who were then being led by Josue who succeeded Moises. They brought it with them when they entered this land which became theirs, when they drove out the previous inhabitants with the help of God. That really was their handed-down worship-place of God till the time of king David.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
