complete verse (Galatians 3:22)

Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 3:22:

  • Uma: “But in the Holy Book there is written like this: all man[kind] is guilty in God’s sight because of their sin. So, there is no other way to be[come] straight in his sight, just simply our faith in Yesus Kristus. The good life that God promised, he will certainly give to whomever believes.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “But the holy-book says that all mankind is sinful and they are like figuratively ruled over by sin. Therefore only because of ones/our (dual) trust in Isa can one/we (dual) receive the good/blessing God promised. We (incl.) are given life without end when/if we (incl.) trust in Isa Almasi.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “However, the written word of God tells us that as for us (incl.) all mankind, we were all sentenced to punishment because of our evil behavior and because of this, God will only fulfill his promises to us if we trust Him; we can only be given life forever if we have faith.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “But they aren’t able, because what God caused-to-be-written says that all people, they are imprisoned by the power of sin. That was God’s plan so that what he promised which is based on a person’s faith in Jesu Cristo would be given only to those who believe.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “But because of those laws of his, we can understand what the writing means (when it says) that every person here under heaven is under-the-rule of sin. Well, as long as people now understood the extent of their sin, it was now possible for God’s promise to be fulfilled that all who trust and believe in what Jesu-Cristo did would have sin removed from them.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “But it is written in the Holy Book that all people are captured by sin. Therefore we know that only those who believe in Christ meet up with what God promised to give to those who believe.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
