complete verse (Hebrews 10:22)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 10:22:

  • Uma: “Our hearts he made-holy with his blood so that we know that we no longer have any guilt/wrong. Our bodies he bathed with water as a sign that he has cleaned us. That’s why I fire-up your hearts, relatives, let us approach God with our whole heart [lit., our real heart] and with faith that is no longer uncertain/wavering.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Therefore we (incl.) should come-close-to/approach God whole-heartedly (lit. with a single liver) and with strong trust in him and our (dual) minds should not be troubled anymore because our (dual) livers have been cleansed and we (dual) have been bathed as a sign that we (incl.) have been cleansed already.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And because of this we come in the presence of God and our worship of Him is not false. Let us draw tight our faith and let us not doubt. For we know that we have been cleansed by the blood of Jesus. And we know also that this has removed our sins. We (incl.) have been baptized as a sign of our being cleansed by God.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “we ought to draw-near to God with our minds sincere (lit. from-the-heart) and our faith persistent. Our minds must also have been cleansed as if we have been sprinkled with the blood of Cristo and as if our bodies have also been washed with clean water.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Therefore let us not now be hesitant, but rather let us now approach into the presence of God not just jokingly, but rather in truth, and our trust and believing/obeying him being sturdy. Because what is now dominant in our mind/inner-being is, we are now clean from all sin, for it’s like Jesus sprinkled us with his blood, and it’s like he washed us with far-from-ordinary water.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Therefore let us approach where God is. We will worship with all our hearts, never will we doubt concerning our faith. The evil thoughts we had have been washed. The same for our bodies, it is as though they were washed so that we can pass to where God is.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
