complete verse (Galatians 6:14)

Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 6:14:

  • Uma: “But as for me, I do not want to be proud about anything [make-big my heart], I just make-big [i.e., praise, honor] our Lord Yesus Kristus who died crucified. We can say like this, when Yesus was crucified, I also was crucified, for my connection with everything in this world was severed, there is no longer anything that I hope in other than him.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “But (as for) me, there is nothing else that I boast about only just about the death of our (incl.) Leader, Isa Almasi because of me. Because/For he died being nailed on the post so that he could free me from my sin. And because of his death I am no longer carried/influenced by the greedy-desires which-are-evil in this world and I no longer have a desire for the evil deeds in this world.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “As for me by contrast, the only one I praise is our Lord Jesus Christ who let Himself be killed as our substitute. Because of His dying, I am no longer a slave to earthly desires and there is no longer any power of these to rule over me.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “But as for me, I boast-about nothing except the death of Jesu Cristo our Lord on the cross, because due to that death of his, what worldly people value has ceased-to-have value to me, and I also, I have ceased-to-be of-account in the estimation of worldly people.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “But as for me, that habit of praise-seeking is far from me. I will certainly not seek praise for myself but rather for what Jesu-Cristo our Lord did, in that he took-upon-himself- on the cross -the-punishment for our sins. For, because of that death of his on the cross, I now regard as of no account all that is striven for here in the world, that supposedly being what can cause them to be accepted by God. And also the world’s estimation of me is that I am a person of no account, for I no longer regard as important these things that they strive after.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “But I do not want to be proud about anything, I only want to tell about Jesus Christ dying on the cross. Since Christ died on the cross for me, now I do not like the evil practiced by the people here on earth. And these people who do evil also do not like me.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
