complete verse (Galatians 2:20)

Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 2:20:

  • Uma: “It is no longer I who am now living, it is Kristus [emphatic] who lives in my life. So, as long as I am in this world, I will believe in the Child of God who loved me and gave himself to be killed taking-my-place.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “It is as if I have figuratively died but I live because here Almasi lives in my liver. And as long as I live in this world, I will continue to trust in the Son/Child of God. He loves/loved me and he yielded/surrendered to die because of me.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Because of my trust in Christ, I’m as if I were nailed to the cross with Him because He is my substitute. It’s as if I died; however, I’m still alive because Christ lives in me. And this life which I have here on earth is made possible only by means of my faith in Him, the Son of God. I am precious in His breath and He allowed Himself to be killed as my substitute so that I might be freed.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because it is counted that I died-with Cristo on the cross, so it’s as if it is not I who am alive now but rather it is Cristo who is alive in me. Because my life now, it is based on my faith in the Child of God who showed his love for me in/by his giving his life for me.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “And now, even though I am still alive, I recognize that it’s like not I who am living but rather Cristo now is the one living in my body. For it’s no longer my will that I am following/obeying, but rather his will now. Therefore as long as I’m still here in the world, I am living by the strength of my belief and trust in him who is the Son (lit.Child) of God, he who allowed his life/breath to be severed because of the big-size of his valuing me.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “When Jesus Christ was fastened to the cross, I also reckon that I was fastened there on the cross. Now I do not decide myself about how I will live, only Christ fills my heart. During the days I live here on the earth only the Son of God I believe in now. He loved me and he delivered up himself to die for me.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
