complete verse (Hebrews 12:24)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 12:24:

  • Uma: “You face Yesus, the mediator that makes strong the new promise that connects mankind with God. Yesus died, his blood flowed, and his blood is better than the blood of Habel long ago.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “You have also come-close to Isa the one who established the new covenant. The new covenant was established because his blood was spilled so that we (incl.) would be clean/holy and that God would forgive us (incl.). The final outcome of the spilled blood of Isa is much better than the final outcome of the blood of Habil of old, for the final outcome of the death of Habil was retaliation for him.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “We have also come near to Jesus, Who is our chief, Who made a new way for us to be made one with God. By means of His blood our sins were cleansed; His blood is a sign of God’s kindness to us, and that blood is much better than the blood of Abel long ago, because the blood of Abel was a sign of the punishment of God.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “and Jesu Cristo who validated (lit. tied-the-knot-in) the new agreement. His blood which flowed-out, what it means to say is better than Abel’s blood, because Abel’s blood, it’s as if it requests to be avenged and that’s all.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Really the one we have approached is Jesus, he being the one who made firm the New Initiated-agreement, and his blood which was like sprinkled on us. That is what has superior effectiveness, more so than that blood of Abel which just asks for revenge.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “We believe in Jesus Christ, the one who has made the new agreement which there is. Concerning his blood which flowed, it has power to clear our sins, it isn’t like the blood of Abel which requires a judgment.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
