complete verse (Ephesians 3:10)

Following are a number of back-translations of Ephesians 3:10:

  • Uma: “His purpose [was], that beginning from this time he will show to all rulers and powerful beings who are in the air/sky his wisdom [lit., clearness] planning/ordering everything. He will show them this by his uniting the Yahudi and not Yahudi people because of their connection with Kristus.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “God had not made this known formerly because he wanted that the angels who have authority and power, would know that all the various kinds of God’s wisdom are really deep. They know this because of us (incl.) the ones trusting in Isa Almasi.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “The reason was not revealed long ago was so that now by means only of believers in Christ, God might show to the supernatural beings and the bosses in Heaven, how great is His wisdom which is of various kinds.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “in order that it would be made-known now because of all of us who believe. Because when the leaders of the angels and the other powerful-ones that cannot be seen in heaven see the fulfillment of God’s plan concerning us who believe, then they will fully come-to-know his wisdom and the various evidences of it (lit. ways-it-is-caused-to-be-seen).” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For those controlling and having authority in the atmosphere, when they see the oneness of the nations of people who are now trusting and believing/obeying Jesus, God’s wisdom/understanding of all things and the good of his determined-plans will be evident to them.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “And now the day has arrived that even the angels who have power in heaven will see what God has done for the believers and they will see that God abundantly has wisdom.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
