complete verse (Hebrews 5:5)

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

  • Uma: “Thus also Kristus, he did not exalt himself, he did not appoint himself to be a Big Priest. It was God who appointed him, he said to him: ‘You(s) are my Child, Today I-relate-to-you(s)-as-Child.'” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Likewise Isa did not cause himself to be great so that he would be made high priest. But he was made-great/honored by God, for God spoke to him, he said, ‘You are my Son; now I am your Father.'” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And in the same way also, Christ did not choose Himself in order to become our (incl.) powerful high priest, but rather God did, because God said to Him, ‘You are my Son and I say that today, I will show that I am Your Father.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Likewise also with Cristo, he didn’t make-himself -high to become the honored highest priest but rather it was God who chose him. Because God said to him, ‘You (singular) are my Child. Today I will show that I am your (singular) Father.'” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Well in just the same way, Cristo did not just elevate himself to his responsibility/job of Most-important Priest, but rather God indeed is the origin of this. For what he said which he caused-to-be-written in the past says, ‘Now/today, I am positively-indicating that you (singular) are my Son. I am your Father.'” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “And now, this Jesus Christ is like a high priest of God where God is. He did not decide on his own to work as priest, rather God appointed him to this work. Because God said to him: ‘You are my Son. Let the people know now that I am your Father,’ he said.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
