complete verse (Hebrews 10:25)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 10:25:

  • Uma: “Let’s not stop having-services together, like some people are doing. We must remain [i.e., be faithful] gathering together and strengthening each other’s hearts–especially at this time, for we know that the Lord is about to arrive.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Let us (incl.) also not stop gathering calling on God. Let us (incl.) not be like other adherents/disciples of Isa, who no longer even gather together. Instead we (incl.) ought to gather so that we (incl.) encourage each other’s livers especially because the day will soon come when our (incl.) Lord Isa Almasi will return.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Let’s not give up our gathering together to worship God: let’s not be like some other believers who have given up worshipping, but rather let us gather together so that we might advise each other. This is very necessary, especially now that we can tell that the return of our Lord Jesus is very near.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Let us not ignore our gathering-together like some are doing, but rather let us strengthen the faith of our companions, especially since we can see that the day on which the Lord Jesus will come again is getting-closer.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “It’s also necessary that we not make our gathering-together to worship God something-needing-constant-reminding, like the habit of some. Rather what’s good is, (let us) always strengthen the believing/obeying of one another, especially now that it’s like we are sure now that the return of the Lord here to the world to judge is coming near.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “There are believers who do not attend where their fellow believers gather. But it should not be that we follow what they do. Rather, let us go to where believers meet, let us strengthen one another. It is important that we do so because you now see that nearer is coming the day when our Lord Jesus Christ will come.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
