complete verse (Genesis 32:10)

Following are a number of back-translations as well as a sample translation for translators of Genesis 32:10:

  • Kankanaey: “I am not worthy of the large help you (sing.) have-been-giving me who serves you (sing.). But you (sing.) have helped-me nonetheless, because when-I-crossed the river Jordan back then, only a walking-stick is what I was-taking-along. Now however, two groups of my people and possessions are what-there-are.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Newari: “I am not worthy of the kindness, love, and trust that you show your servant. For when I crossed over the Jordan River I had only a stick, [and] now I have two large groups of people and cattle.” (Source: Newari Back Translation)
  • Hiligaynon: “I (am) not worthy to-receive all the goodness and faithfulness which you (sing.) have- already -shown to me your servant. For when I crossed-over before Jordan I had-nothing to-carry but only [emphasis marker] a staff, but now I already have two groups.” (Source: Hiligaynon Back Translation)
  • English: “I am not worthy for you to have been so kind and faithful to me in so many ways, your servant. I had only this walking stick with me when I crossed the Jordan River on my way to Haran, but now I am so wealthy that there are two large groups of my family and possessions.” (Source: Translation for Translators)
