complete verse (Hebrews 4:6)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 4:6:

  • Uma: “They, they did not get rest with God because they did not submit to him. But God’s purpose is that there must be people who get that rest.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “The people of old who heard the good news about this place-of-rest did not enter and rest because they did not believe God. But there are other people whom God will cause to enter.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Because of this we know that as for those people long ago who were the first to hear the Good news about His rest, God did not make it possible for them to enter in to rest because of their disobedience. However, we (incl.) know also that there are some other people that God, by contrast, will make it possible for them to enter in that they might rest with Him.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “What it says there that there is a resting-place that he prepared, it means to say that there are those whom God wants to enter. And since those who heard the good news back then didn’t enter on account of their not believing,” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Therefore it’s clear that those who first heard this Good News concerning rest under the jurisdiction of God, they could not be included because of their disobedience. But even though it was like that, God desires that there be those who can be included in the rest that he is reserving for people.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Again concerning these people who first heard this word, God did not give them rest in his resting place because they did not believe what he told them. But now there is still awaited other people who will believe what God says and will be given a resting place at his resting place.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
