complete verse (Hebrews 11:11)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 11:11:

  • Uma: “From their faith, even though Abraham was old and Sara was barren as well, they did get strength to have descendants. That happened because it was clear in Abraham’s heart that God would fulfill his promise.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Likewise Sara, the wife of Ibrahim, she also trusted in God. Even though she did not give birth and was already old she finally became pregnant because she believed the promise of God that she would finally give birth.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And as for Sarah also, the wife of Abraham, she had faith because even though she had never given birth and she was also very old, she became pregnant just the same because she believed God. The reason she became pregnant was because she believed God’s promise to her, that the time would come when she would give birth.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Sara also who was Abraham’s wife, she was a barren-one who was already an-old-woman, but because of her faith, God gave her the ability to become-pregnant (lit. be-withed), because she considered that God was faithful to fulfill what he had promised.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Because also of their believing/obeying and trust in God Abraham and Sara had-a-child, even though they were now very old and as for Sara, she was not a child-bearing woman. For what was in Abraham’s mind/thinking was, everything God says/does is wholly truth, in-that it’s not possible that he would not fulfill what he had promised him.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Also Sarah believed that it is true what God says. Therefore even though she was an old woman, yet there was born to her the son which God said would be born.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
