complete verse (Hebrews 6:19)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 6:19:

  • Uma: “That hoping of ours is like a foundation-stone that makes our hearts stay so that our faith does not shake/rock. In the Worship Tent that the prophet Musa built long ago, a cloth middle-wall blocked the way of mankind so they could not enter the More Holy Room. But we, there is nothing that blocks our way to meet-with God.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Our (incl.) expectation/hope in God’s promises is figuratively like an anchor that makes us (dual) firm/fixes us to God. It is very certain that God fulfills his promises because Isa has already gone ahead of us (dual) to heaven into the presence of God mediating for us (incl.). Like the Yahudi priests enter the temple (lit. big prayer-house) (and) go into the innermost room that is shielded by thick cloth, like that Isa has entered into the presence of God because now he is high priest forever like the priest Malkisadik of old.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)

  • Kankanaey: “This hope of ours, that is what makes-firm/stable our faith, because it is certain to be fulfilled. Because of our hope, it’s as if we have already entered the exact place of God like the entering of the highest priest into the Holiest Room in the Temple which a curtain hid-from-view.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “This hope/expectation of ours which is firmly-grounded, what it’s like is a firm anchor of our souls/spirits, so that they will not be lost. For there’s no other anchoring-place except in the presence of God, which is like in the Exceedingly Far-from-ordinary Room in the Temple (glossary item), on the other side of the view-blocking curtain.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “We do not doubt that there will be our part in the good which God will give. Because the one in whom we have confidence and we rest our minds on is Jesus Christ who is in heaven.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
