Following are a number of back-translations as well as a sample translation for translators of Genesis 30:20:

  • Newari: “Then Leah said — ‘God has given me a great reward. Now my husband will honor me, for I have given him six sons.’ So she named him Zebulun.” (Source: Newari Back Translation)
  • Hiligaynon: “She said, ‘God has-given me a very good gift. My husband will- now -honor me for I now have-given him six children who (are) all-without-exception males.’ So she named the child Zebulun.” (Source: Hiligaynon Back Translation)
  • English: “Leah said, ‘God has given me a precious gift. This time/Now my husband will honor/respect me, because I have given birth to six sons for him.’ So she named him Zebulon, which sounds like the Hebrew word that means ‘accepted gift’.” (Source: Translation for Translators)
