Following are a number of back-translations of Acts 8:28:

  • Uma: “Filipus did go. At that time, there was also an Ethiopia person traveling on that road returning going to his town. That Etiopia person was a man of big rank, who controlled all the contents of the house of the queen of the land of Etiopia who was named Kandake. Having finished worshipping God in Yerusalem, he was returning to his town riding a cart pulled by horses. While he sat in his cart, he read the letter of the prophet Yesaya.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)

  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And then Philip left. And there was a person there, an Ethiopian, who had gone to Jerusalem because he will worship God. He was an official trusted by the Candace, which is to say, queen, there in Ethiopia. The queen entrusted to him all of her wealth. And when the official was going home riding on a cart, he was reading the book which Isaiah wrote a long time ago, Isaiah the inspired one of God.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
