complete verse (Galatians 6:13)

Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 6:13:

  • Uma: “But actually, those people who are following the custom of circumcision, even they are not following all the Law of Musa. Their desire is for you to be circumcised so that they will be proud [lit., their hearts will be big] of your following their orders.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Even though they teach that you ought to be circumcised as the law written by Musa commands, they do not follow/obey all the commands in the law. They force/persuade you to be circumcised only so that they can boast that they are the ones who convinced you therefore you were circumcised.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “As for those people, now they teach that it is necessary that you be circumcised according to the teaching of the Law. But in spite of that, they do not thoroughly keep the Law. The reason they want that you be circumcised is so that they might be praised because you have become their converts.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Even those who are circumcised, they don’t obey all the laws of Moses, but they want you to get-circumcised so they will be able to boast that you got-circumcised because of them.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “But even those who have themselves circimcised, they are not in fact obeying those laws with true obedience. They are just forcing you to be circumcised so that they will be praised because they persuaded you to join the way that they are following.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Well, these teachers whose bodies are marked do not even do all that the law says. They only want you to be marked in order that where they talk they can be proud, saying that you have obeyed them in getting marked.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
