complete verse (Hebrews 7:14)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 7:14:

  • Uma: “What/Who is referred to here is our Lord. For we know that our Lord was born from the descendants of Yehuda, he was not from the descendants of Lewi. There has never yet been one of the family of Yehuda who was appointed [lit., lifted] to be/become a priest, for in the law of priests, Musa never once mentioned the family of Yehuda.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Our (incl.) Lord Isa Almasi hep is the one-taking-the-place in priesting but he is not a descendant of Libi. It is known that he is a descendant of Yuda and there has been no priest from the descendants of Yuda. Musa didn’t mention anything about the descendants of Yuda when he spoke about the priests.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And as for our Lord Jesus, who is the priest who replaced the former priest, he is not a descendant of Levi because he is a descendant of Judah and of all the descendants of Judah, he is the only one who has been made a priest. Because Moses did not teach long ago that there were descendants of Judah who could be made priests.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “We know that these have already been replaced, because our Lord of whom this that God caused-to-be-written is speaking was not a descendant of Levi. We all know that Juda was the one who ancestored him, and there are absolutely no descendants of Juda who have served as priests in charge of what was offered to God. Neither is there anything that Moses said about a descendant of Juda who was a priest.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “The proof is, our Lord Jesus who is the one to whom I am referring here, he was not of the clan of the descendants of Levi from-which- the priests -were-chosen in the past. We all know that as for Jesus, (he was) of the clan of the descendants of Juda. As for this clan, it was not mentioned by Moises when he explained about whom it was possible to make a priest. There really is not even one who was priest from the clan of the descendants of Juda. The priesthood of Jesus, (it is) suitable/fitting for our needs, just like the priesthood of Melquisedec” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “It is well known that this Lord Jesus is of the root of Judah. Yet when Moses appointed who were to be the priests, concerning this root of Judah, he did not say a thing about it having the work of being priests.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
