Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 11:28:

  • Uma: “From his faith, he did the custom of the big day of Paskah, he ordered the Yahudi people to sprinkle blood on the doors of their houses, so that when the killing angel went by, their firstborn children would not be killed-along-with the firstborn children of the Mesir people.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Because he trusted in God therefore Musa followed God’s commands. He commanded to sprinkle the blood of a sheep on the doors of their houses so that their first born children would not be killed by the angel who brought death. That is when he first made/established the custom about the feast/celebration called Remembrance of the Passing-by of God.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And because of his faith, he carried out the Feast of the Passover and he commanded that the doors of the houses of the descendants of Israel be sprinkled with the blood of a lamb. The reason he did this was so that the elder children might not be killed by the angel of God that was caused to kill all of the oldest children of the people in Israel.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Also because of his faith, he taught his companions the descendants of Israel what they needed to do at the fiesta called Passed-By. He instructed them to butcher a sheep so they would sprinkle its blood on the sides of their doorways so that when the angel came to kill the firstborn children in Egipto, he would pass-by the houses of the descendants of Israel killing none of the firstborn.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Because also of his believing what God said, Moises ordered that the doorways of their houses be daubed with blood so that the Exterminating Angel would not kill their, the Israelitas’, oldest children. And from that day he set in motion the Fiesta of Passed-by.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Moses believed that it is true what God says. He ordered all the Jews to kill sheep and prepare the feast of Passover. Concerning the blood of the sheep which were killed, they placed it on their doors so that when passed the angel who would kill the eldest sons, he would not kill the sons of the Jews.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
