complete verse (Hebrews 2:10)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 2:10:

  • Uma: “God made everything, and all that there is follows his decision. God’s purpose/plan is, he wants/wanted to lift up people to become his children and give them bigness of life [glory]. That’s why he decided that Yesus must undergo suffering to the point of dying. This decision of God’s is very appropriate, for from the suffering that Yesus underwent, Yesus became a Redeemer who has no lack, who slashes/blazes the way for us to follow to get goodness [salvation].” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “God, the creator and watcher/carer of everything, his doing is really right in what he caused Isa to experience. He caused Isa to experience persecution/suffering to show that Isa is truly able to save mankind. He was caused to experience persecution/suffering so that many men/humans could be made children of God and be praised together with Isa. For Isa is hep their savior.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “As for God who created everything so that everything might be a means of His being praised, it was very proper for Him to allow Jesus to suffer torment, for by means of this He showed that there was nothing in Jesus to be rebuked, and it’s possible for many of us (incl.) to be made the sons of God so that we might be made immortal, just like He was made immortal. Jesus became the way so that we might be freed from punishment.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “God is the one who created everything and everything was created in order that he would be praised/honored. Exactly correct then was his plan to make Jesus our proper/correct leader through the hardship that he experienced, because Jesus is the one who is leading us in our being-saved. God did that so that many would be his children whom he would call to heaven to share-in his greatness.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For the reason that all things, they were determined by God and these all are the means of his being praised, (therefore) it was really fitting that he determine that this Jesus, (he) would endure big hardship. Because in that (hardship) Jesus completed everything he needed to do so that he would take/lead many people whom God has adopted to far-from-ordinary glory. Jesus alone is the origin of salvation and he is the one going-ahead-of/leading them to this salvation of theirs.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Concerning all things which God has created to exist, they will be existing to do his work. But God wanted that as however many people become his children, that these he will take to where he is. Therefore God must clear the sins of his people, and he caused that Jesus died in order to save them.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
