complete verse (Hebrews 10:5)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 10:5:

  • Uma: “That’s why when Kristus arrived in the world, he said to God like this: ‘You do not request worship-gifts and offerings, you do not like worship-gifts that are burned or livestock that is slaughtered to pay-for sin. But [it is] my body [that] you have prepared as the worship-gift that you like.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “This is hep the reason why Almasi, when he was about to come here into the world said to God, he said, ‘You don’t want animal sacrifices and gifts of the people. But you have prepared for me a body.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And we know this because at the time long ago when Christ came here to the world, He said to His father God, He said, ‘It’s not the sacrifices of animals that You want, but rather You created a body for Me to use and that’s what You want to be sacrificed.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “That is the reason that when Cristo came to the earth, he said to God, ‘It’s not butchered animals and other offerings that you (singular) desire. Neither is it the burning of animals and other offerings for sin that make-you-(singular)-happy. Therefore there is a body that you (singular) have prepared for me.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “That’s why when Cristo’s first coming here to the world was near, he said to his Father, ‘It’s not the blood of animals which are sacrificed, or other things being-given, that you (singular) were-pleased-with but rather it was this blood of mine which will be shed. Therefore there is the body of a man/human that you have caused-to-come-into-being for me.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Therefore Christ, when he was about to come here on earth, said to God: ‘Concerning the animals people kill to offer as sacrifices, you do not look well upon them as able to clear the people’s sins. Rather you have determined that there be my body which will become a sacrifice.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
