complete verse (Acts 7:8)

Following are a number of back-translations of Acts 7:8:

  • Uma: “After that, God made a connecting promise with Abraham, and he ordered that Abraham and all his children be circumcised. That circumcision custom became a sign of God’s promise with the descendants of Abraham. So, when the child of Abraham named Ishak was indeed born, he circumcised him on the eight day. After that also, Ishak circumcised Yakub his child. And Yakub circumcised his twelve children. And they became the ancestors of all us the Yahudi people.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Then God covenanted with Ibrahim and God said to Ibrahim that the male should be circumcised, a sign that they agreed to that covenant. Therefore when Isahak was born, Ibrahim circumcised him on the eight day. Isahak also, he circumcised his son Yakub, and Yakub he also circumcised his twelve children/sons. These are the ancestors/forefathers of our (incl.) Yahudi nation/tribe.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And Stephen said, ‘There was also a promise of God to Abraham. God commanded that all of them who are males should be circumcized because this is the sign of their agreement with the promise of God. Therefore when Abraham had Isaac, eight days after he was born, Abraham circumcized Isaac. And when Jacob was born to Isaac, he circumcized him also, and when Jacob had children also, he circumcized the twelve sons of his who are the ancestors of us (incl.) Jews.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “God also commanded plural Abraham to circumcise their male children as a sign of the agreement-he -presented to them. When Abraham’s child Isaac was born, he circumcised him on the eighth day. And that moreover was what Isaac did to his child Jacob. That was also what Jacob did to his twelve male children, our ancestors long ago.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “And then concerning God’s initiated-agreement with Abraham, God commanded that down through the generations they circumcize every male among them as a sign that they are included in that initiated-agreement of his. Therefore, when they gave birth to Isaac, when the eighth day came he was then circumcized. Well, Isaac was the father of Jacob, and Jacob was the father of twelve males, these being from whom the twelve clans of us Jews originated.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
