complete verse (Hebrews 5:14)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 5:14:

  • Uma: “Hard/solid food is for people who are already big. That means, people who take-to-heart and follow the true teaching, to the point that they become clear/mature, they know how to distinguish good behavior and evil behavior.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “But if a person is old/mature he can eat solid food, that means he is used to thinking and he knows already as to what is the good and what is the bad.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “But when we (incl.) are already old, we can chew in strong food, which is to say, we can teach deep things already, and we already know how to think, and we can already tell what is the difference between what is the good and what is the evil way.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “But the one who is compared to a mature person who can-chew proper food, it is the person whose faith is mature who is able-to-understand deep teaching. The person like that, he has accustomed his mind to distinguish good and evil.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “But this hard/solid food, which means deep teachings, this is for those whose minds/thinking are now mature. These people, they are really accustomed now to choosing good deeds, and to recognizing and rejecting deeds which are evil. 5:5 Psalm 2:7. 5:6 Psalm 110:4.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “But concerning those who eat food, they are grown people. Because they now know how to judge in how they walk. They know when they walk good or bad.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
