complete verse (Galatians 3:8)

Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 3:8:

  • Uma: “From long ago God had a plan to make-straight non-Yahudi people because of their faith. That is why in the Holy Book God foretold the Good News to Abraham, he said to him: "From you I will bless all the people in the world."” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “God said formerly in the holy-book that even the people who are not Yahudi he considers straight if they trust in him. He formerly explained to Ibrahim this good news. He said to Ibrahim, ‘Because of you I will give good/blessing to all mankind on earth/in the world.'” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “God said before in His written word, that even the people who were not Jews, He would consider them righteous if they believed in Him. He explained before to Abraham the Good News. He said, ‘Because you believed what I said, I blessed you. And by means also of your faith, I will bless all mankind here on the earth.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “It was also prophesied in God’s word that non Jews will be made-righteous in God’s sight because of faith, because this is the meaning of the good news that God already-told Abraham which was also written in his word. He said, ‘Because of you (singular), the collective-people in all the collective-towns/countries will be blessed.'” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “And because God determined already that, because of the trust and belief of people who are not Jews, he would regard them as righteous/straight, he made known to Abraham the Good News contained in the writing which says, ‘Coming from you all nations of people here under heaven will be shown-grace/mercy.'” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “in the Holy book, a long time ago the good news was written that also those people who are not Jews would have their sins taken care of when they believed God. This is what God said when speaking to Abraham: ‘Because of you all the people who live on earth will be blessed.'” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
