complete verse (Galatians 1:2)

Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 1:2:

  • Uma: “This letter is from me, Paulus, the apostle/messenger of the Lord Yesus, I send to you, the Galatia relatives that believe in the Lord Yesus. I and all the relatives of one faith who are here say many greetings! It is not man[kind] that sent me ["sent" is the verb upon which the key term "apostle" is based], and neither is it man[kind] that lifted me to become a apostle of the Lord Yesus. It was Yesus Kristus himself [emphatic] who made me his apostle, with God the Father who made him live again from death.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)

  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “I am Paul who has written this. I’m sending this to all of you believers there in the towns of all the province of Galatia. I and all the believers who are my companions here, we greet you. I’m an apostle, but I was not given the title of an apostle by a mere person. And I was not sent by means of just a person, but rather I was given the title of an apostle by Jesus Christ and our father God who raised Jesus from the dead, and they are the ones who sent me.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)

All our siblings in believing who are my companions here, they greet you.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
