complete verse (Galatians 2:6)

Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 2:6:

  • Uma: “So, those leaders in Yerusalem who are said to have big rank did not add anything to my teaching. (Whether they have big rank or not is just the same to me, because God does not distinguish/look-at the appearance of people.)” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “The leaders of the ones trusting in Isa Almasi, when they heard my teaching, they did not find-fault with it and they also did not add anything. Even though they are regarded/considered high/great people, it did not matter to me (lit. not-cause-what) because to/as-for God all people are the same.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And at that time, even those people in Jerusalem who seemed to be the bosses of the believers, there was nothing that they taught me to perfect what I teach. The reason I say that they seem to be bosses, because there’s no value to God in the title that people give us. They did not add anything to what I teach, but rather they understood at that time that God had entrusted to me the spreading of the Good News to the people who are not Jews, just like He’d entrusted also to Peter the spreading of this to the Jews.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Like I said, those-aforementioned who were considered leaders–(it doesn’t matter to me what their status was previously, because there is no person to whom God shows-favoritism (lit. causes-to-be-differentiated) on-the-basis-of his status)–they added nothing to what I was teaching,” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Well, like I said, those overseers of the believers in Jerusalem, they didn’t criticise any of my teaching. They didn’t correct anything. (Even though they are recognized as high/important, it doesn’t agitate my mind/inner-being, because I know that, as for God, he isn’t pleased with a person just because of his outward circumstances.)” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Concerning those believers who lead in the word, it does not matter to me whether they lead or not, because in the face and eyes of God people are not different. But those who lead did not speak any word to me to tell me that the word I speak is not correct.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
