Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 1:8:

  • Uma: “But I say to you, whoever brings a Good News that is different, that is not the same as the Good News that we (excl.) already announced to you, [may] God curse them! Whether it is we (excl.) ourselves or even an angel from heaven, they must definitely be cursed by God!” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “But if there is a person or even yet we (excl.) or even yet an angel from heaven and he proclaims/preaches a different good news than/from the true teaching which we (excl.) have preached to you, truly he will go to hell.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “However, I say to you that if there’s anyone – even if it is we, or even an angel who comes from Heaven – and he preaches to you that which he calls Good News but it is different and it is not the true doctrine which we preached to you, may he be placed in hell.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “I warn you that even if we (excl.) ourselves or an angel from heaven were to go preach something different from the good news that we (excl.) preached to you previously, may he be punished in hell forever.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “But well, the truth of it is, whoever teaches you differently from that which we (excl.) taught, it’s really necessary that God punish him with unlimited punishment, even (if it’s) us (excl.) apostles, or one of the angels (glossary item) from heaven/sky.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “But even though we ourselves, or an angel should come from heaven, if one should arise to tell you another good news and it is not just the same as the word we have already told you, then the one who tells a different word will go to punishment.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
