complete verse (Ephesians 2:16)

Following are a number of back-translations of Ephesians 2:16:

  • Uma: “By his death on that cross, Kristus united/made-at-peace the Yahudi people and those who are not Yahudi people, and from there he united us all / made us all at peace with God. The death of Kristus on that cross ended all differences.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Because of his death on the post the Yahudi and non Yahudi are reconciled by Almasi and they are no longer enemies and they are now made one by him. Likewise because of his death we (incl.) have been reconciled with God.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “By means of Christ letting Himself be killed on the cross, he removed our (incl.) hostility, Jews against not-Jews, and He made us (incl.) one kind of person so that we (incl.) might return to the worship of the true God.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because when he died on the cross, he terminated the law of the Jews which contained many rules so that he would become-the-only-one that we (excl.) Jews and you Gentiles would follow. So now, that is the basis-of-our -getting-along-together because he made-us -new by turning-us -into what is like a single body on account of our being joined to him. He did that in order that he would bring-us all -close to God.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For because of that death of his on the cross, he terminated the opposition between the Jews and the nations who are not Jews. They are all the same in that he caused them to return to God and he made them like all-one-body now.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Because the fact is that Christ died on the cross, and that has reconciled God with the people who believed in him. For the Jews and for the people who are not Jews, now has come to an end the disagreement these people had in their hatred. He brought together all the two groups as though they become one person.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
