complete verse (Galatians 2:8)

Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 2:8:

  • Uma: “(For God gave strength to Petrus to be the apostle of the Lord Yesus to the Yahudi people. And it was also the same God who gave me strength to be his apostle to people who are not Yahudi people.)” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “God, Petros was commissioned by him commanded to proclaim to the Yahudi. Likewise also I was commissioned by him commanded to proclaim to the not Yahudi.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Because as for God, He inspired Peter so that he might become an apostle who is the one who would tell the news to the Jews and in the same way also He inspired me so that I might become the apostle whom He would send to the people who aren’t Jews.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “but rather they agreed it was correct. Because they came-to-know that because of God’s grace/mercy, he had entrusted to me my apostleship to preach the good news to the Gentiles just like his entrusting to Pedro his apostleship to preach to the Jews. Their means-of-knowing that, it was that they saw that God had been blessing my preaching to the Gentiles just like his blessing Pedro’s work to/with the Jews. Therefore those-aforementioned who were considered to have authority who were Santiago and Pedro and Juan, they shook-hands-with Barnabas and me to show that we (excl.) exactly understood-one-another. What we (excl.) agreed-on was that Barnabas and I would continue to preach to the Gentiles while they also would continue to preach to the Jews.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “And just as God had graced Pedro with ability in his job/responsibility, that also was what he graced me with in this job/responsibility of mine.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Because God himself appointed Peter to be the representative of Christ where the Jews are. He also appointed me to be the representative of Christ where the people who are not Jews are.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
