complete verse (Ephesians 3:9)

Following are a number of back-translations of Ephesians 3:9:

  • Uma: “He also gave me the work to make clear to all people how God united the Yahudi and non-Yahudi people from their connection with Yesus. From long ago, God, who created the sky and the earth, did not yet reveal that intention of his.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “And God, who created everything, he commanded me also to explain to all people as to what he did so that his plan that he had had from the very beginning and which he hadn’t made known formerly would come to fruition.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Another reason why He sent me was so that I might explain to every person how He has fulfilled the things He decided to do beforehand. This was not revealed a long time ago because God, the creator of everything, had hidden it.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “He also sent me to make-clear to all people the way his plan will be fulfilled. Because God who created all that exists, he wasn’t making-known this plan of his for a long-time until now” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “And he also entrusted to me the work that I will explain to all people how he will fulfill his determined-plan which he has kept hidden since when there was still no world, he who created everything.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “It is wanted that I cause all the people to know about the word which was not known. God has made all that there is and long ago he determined what he wanted to come to pass, but it was not known about this until it is made known now.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
