complete verse (Hebrews 10:34)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 10:34:

  • Uma: “Your hearts were also full-of-pity thinking about people who were imprisoned because of their following the Lord Yesus. When your belongings was forcibly-taken, it didn’t matter-to-you, you were happy anyway because you know that you had a store/reserve that was better and that lasts forever.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “You really showed your mercy towards your fellow disciples of Isa who were in prison. And even though your belongings were taken by the people, you were still glad because you knew that you had a much better treasure/wealth there in heaven and this wealth/treasure is not lost for you forever/you will never lose.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And you pitied and you helped the believers who were put in prison. And even though people seized all of your possessions, you rejoiced just the same because you knew that there were far better possessions of yours there in Heaven that until forever could not be snatched away from you.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because you showed-compassion on your companions who were imprisoned. And when they took-by-force your possessions, you were happy to endure it, because you knew that you still had a better and lasting kind of possession.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “You were not afraid to help whoever of you was in-prison, and when you experienced the confiscation of your possessions you were in fact happy. Because you knew that far better and lasting are the riches which are-stored-up for you for the-future-time.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Concerning the believers who were jailed, you helped them, giving what they needed. You even rejoiced when what you owned was taken from you. Because you know that much more valuable is the good you will meet up with in heaven, which will be forever.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
