Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 13:20:

  • Uma: “At/By the death of our Lord Yesus, his blood strengthened the promise that connects us with God forever. God raised him again from death, and Yesus became the Main Shepherd, and we the sheep of his flock/shepherding. That’s why I call out to God, the source of goodness of life [peace],” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “God raised Isa our (incl.) Lord from death. He is figuratively the most powerful shepherd and we (incl.) are figuratively the sheep that he cares for. Because of his blood that was poured out at his death, it is sure that God’s covenant will not change forever.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “As for God, He raised from the dead our Lord Jesus. His blood flowed which was the sign of the new and never ending way of our being made one with God. And because of that, Jesus has become the powerful watcher of us, His sheep.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “May God who is the source of peace give you all that you need to fulfill what he wants. May he make-all of us -into people who please him through Jesu Cristo. Because since he was satisfied with the blood of Jesus our Lord which confirmed the new agreement which has no end, he made-him -alive again so that he would be the great/esteemed one-who-takes-care-of us who are like his sheep. May he be praised/worshipped forever. Amen.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “That blood of our Lord Jesus that he shed, that is what is making firm this New Initiated-agreement that has no ending. Therefore God made Jesus alive again and he became the Far-from-ordinary Shepherd of the sheep, they who are believing/obeying him. God is the origin of peace of mind/inner-being, and I am praying that he will grace you” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “God caused that the Lord Jesus Christ resurrected when he had died. His blood which flowed when he died has power to make in force forever the new agreement which there is. So this Christ is our Holy Guardian. And God causes believers to love each other.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
