complete verse (Hebrews 11:35)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 11:35:

  • Uma: “From their faith, women got back their children who had died, they were brought-back-to-life again for them. But there were others who were tortured to death because of their faith, they did not want to be released for they wanted to be-brought-back-to-life again and get a better life.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “There were women whose relatives became alive again from death because of their (the women’s) trust in God. In those times there were also people who rather chose to die being persecuted because of their following God than that they were set free. For they trusted that they would be made alive again in the future and that their life there would be better.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And there were also some women long ago whose faith was great, and by means of this their children who had died were raised from the dead. And there were also some believers long ago in God who were arrested. Even though they were tortured until they died, they did not abandon their faith so that they might in the future be raised in a far better life.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “There were also women whose children who died lived-again. But there were also some who were hardshipped until they died, because they refused to deny their faith in order that they could be freed. Because what they were hoping-for/anticipating, it was the better life in heaven after they would live again.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Because also of believing/obeying and trust in God, there were women who received-as-their-own again their very-held-dear-ones who had now died, because they were made-alive-again. As for others also they regarded-as- more -sweet that they would die from persecution/caused-hardship to them, rather certainly than that they would drop/give-up, for they knew that they would indeed be made alive again and would furthermore be given exceedingly the best life for they would no more die.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Some women, when their children died, had God cause that the ones who had died would again live. There were some who were bound and tortured, being told that if they separated from God, they would escape death. But they let themselves die, wanting that they would have part in the good which would happen at the time of the resurrection later.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
