complete verse (Hebrews 4:1)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 4:1:

  • Uma: “So, since there is still a promise of God’s that gives us opportunity to get rest with him, that’s why we must really be on the alert, lest there are any in our midst who apparently do not get it / who look like they won’t get it.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Now, God also covenants/promises to us (incl.) that we (incl.) can enter the place-of-rest that he has spoken of. Therefore we (incl.) should be careful lest any one of us (incl.) does not get to the place-of-rest that he has promised.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “But in spite of that, God did not remove His former promise, that there would be some people who would be able to enter into His land that they might rest with Him. And because of this, we (incl.) must be on guard so there’s not even one of us whom God does not allow to enter there.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “But what God promised that he had prepared a resting-place, it can still be fulfilled to us, so we ought to be careful lest there be someone among us who is not able-to-enter.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “However even though it’s like that, this that God promised still continues that, as for us people, (we) can be included in being able to rest under his care/jurisdiction. But we need to take care so that there is none of us at all who will fall-short-in-reaching this that he promised.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “And now God calls to us that we enter his resting place, saying that we rest with him. He still continues to call us. But now it is a fearful thing that perhaps there are some who will not enter into God’s resting place.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
