Following are a number of back-translations of Acts 8:33:

  • Uma: “He is disparaged and punished, yet he had no guilt. There is no-one who tell-the-account that he has descendants, because he was killed.'” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “He was put down/criticized and he was not judged with righteous/straight judgment. Who will be able to tell about his descendants? No one. For his life in this world has ended.'” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “They shamed him and their punishing him was not righteous. He has no descendants which can be related (in a geneology) because very short is his life here on earth.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “They shamed him and they didn’t try him fairly/properly. Neither will anyone relate concerning his descendants, because they cut-short (lit. did-intentionally) his life on this earth.'” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
