complete verse (Galatians 2:12)

Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 2:12:

  • Uma: “At first he did not discriminate Yahudi and non-Yahudi people, he ate together with the followers of Yesus who are not Yahudi people. But when several companions of Yakobus arrived from Yerusalem, he distanced himself from the followers of Yesus who were not Yahudi people. He was no longer brave to eat with them because he was afraid those Yahudis who had just arrived would be surprised at him.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “When he first arrived there, he ate with the people not Yahudi who trust Isa Almasi. But after/when some Yahudi trusting in Isa Almasi arrived commanded by Yakub to go there, Petros no longer paid-attention to the not Yahudi and he no longer ate with them. Petros was afraid (that) the Yahudi who defend the law of circumcision might find-fault with him.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Now somewhat a long time after that, Peter came to us (excl.) in the town of Antioch. When he first arrived his behavior was proper, for he gathered together to eat with believers who weren’t Jews. But when some Jewish believers that James had sent arrived, he began avoiding eating with the people who aren’t Jews. And I rebuked him because it was quite clear that what he was doing was not right. The reason he avoided it was because he was afraid because he might be scolded for that action these Jewish believers who say that it’s necessary for the non-Jewish believers to be circumcised.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because when he had just-come, he always (appreciation particle) ate-with our brothers who are Gentiles. But when Jews arrived who had been sent by Santiago, he gradually stopped-doing-it and didn’t eat-with the Gentiles, because he was afraid of the party/group of Jews who insisted that the law of Moses be followed.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For at first he followed the custom of us (excl.) believers there that whether Jews or not, we (excl.) would all eat together. There was no discrimination. But when some Jews arrived from the ones under the oversight of Santiago at Jerusalem, Pedro became afraid that they might scold him, therefore he no longer ate with the believers who weren’t Jews. He was now tabooing them. Because those ones who had arrived, they were among those people who were saying, it is indeed necessary for non Jews to be circumcised, even though they have believed/obeyed Cristo.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “At the first Peter had done what was good. He ate along with the believers who did not have the mark which the Jews have. Then there arrived other people who came from where James was, these were people who required that all believers who were not Jews be marked. After they arrived, Peter was afraid that they would be angry with him, therefore he parted from where the believers who were not marked were.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
