  • Kankanaey: “If there are yet those-to-be-born who are your (sing.) children, they will not be counted as my children but rather as your (sing.) children. What they inherit will-come-from Manasses and Efraim.'” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Newari: “Any that are born later, however, will be yours, not mine. They will take their share from their elder brothers, Manasseh and Ephraim.” (Source: Newari Back Translation)
  • Hiligaynon: “But your (sing.) next children will-remain yours (sing.), and they can-receive an inheritance from Efraim and from Manase.” (Source: Hiligaynon Back Translation)
  • English: “If you later become the father of any more children, they will not be considered to be my children, but as my grandchildren, and in Canaan they will receive as part of what they inherit some of the same land that is in the territory that their brothers Ephraim and Manasseh will inherit.” (Source: Translation for Translators)
