complete verse (Galatians 3:13)

Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 3:13:

  • Uma: “We are all fit to be cursed by God because we have broken his Law. But even so, Kristus freed us from that curse. It is written in the Holy Book long ago like this: "If there is a person who is hung on a tree/wood to be killed, that person is cursed by God." So, when Kristus died on the cross tree, he took-our-place receiving the curse of God.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “But none not even one can follow/obey all that is commanded in the law, that’s why all are under/hit-by the wrath of God. But Almasi was punished in our (incl.) stead/substituting for us and/so-that we (incl.) are freed by him from God’s punishment for us (incl.). His punishment was being killed on the post. For it is written hep in the holy-book it says, ‘If a person is killed hung on a post, that means that he is hit by God’s wrath.'” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And we (incl.) know that nobody can observe this; however, even though we disobey the Law, we have been set free by Jesus from punishment because Jesus was the one who was punished in our place when He was nailed to the cross. For there is a written word of God which says, ‘If there is a person who is killed and hung on a piece of wood stuck in the ground, this is because He is being punished by God.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “But no one is able-to-obey all the commands of the law, so we all ought to be punished. But it’s-all-right because Cristo redeemed us he being our replacement by-means-of his being punished on the cross. We know that God punished him, because there is that which God caused-to-be-written which says, ‘If someone is condemned to die and be hung on a tree, that is the evidence of God’s having-punished him.'” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “But now, we have been saved/freed by Cristo from God’s punishment, his punishment upon these who are not able to obey the laws completely. For instead of us, this Cristo is the one God punished because of our sin, just like what’s written which says, ‘Whoever is killed by being hung on a pole/tree which has-been-stuck-in-the-ground, he is under (lit. has been hit by) the punishment which God has sworn.'” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “We now will not go to the punishment which is spoken of in the law. Because Christ went to the punishment for us. In the Holy Book it says: ‘The person who is fastened to the wood is being punished.'” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
