complete verse (Hebrews 4:15)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 4:15:

  • Uma: “For this Big Priest of ours, he is not a priest who cannot feel/experience our weakness(es). He did feel [them], for he was tested also in every way like us, but he did not sin.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “And this our (dual) High Priest has mercy on us (incl.) because he knows our (incl.) weaknesses, because he was human like we (incl.) are. He experienced all different kinds of temptations from the leader of demons like we (incl.) do also but he was not carried to sin.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “and as for this Jesus, our (incl.) high priest, He already understand our weakness because of our humanity, for He has experienced being tempted long ago by Satan in every way that we are tempted also, but He, by contrast, was not successfully tempted.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “And this Highest Priest of ours, he knows how to feel-with us in our weakness, because all the kinds of temptation that we experience, he also experienced, but as for him by-contrast, he absolutely didn’t sin.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “As for this Far-from ordinary Priest of ours, he can feel pity for us very much in our weaknesses which lead us into sin, because as for him, (he) too experienced all the temptations/tests which come to us people. But as for him, he did not sin.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “This one who is our priest pities us when he sees how we live in misery because we are not strong. He knows what we go through when we live in misery because he too has been urged to commit sin. But not any sin did he commit.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
