Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 7:26:

  • Uma: “So, Yesus is a Big Priest that is capable of helping us. He is holy, he has no faults/wrongs or lacks. Even though he is man[kind] he did not [emphatic] sin like man[kind]. He was lifted up to the dwelling that is higher than all that is in the sky.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Na, Isa is clearly our (incl.) High Priest towards God. He is worthy/matching to help us (incl.) because he is holy/clean. He has no sin or blemish. He is caused to be different from sinful mankind. And he is made great by God there in heaven.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Jesus is the one who is the high priest that we (incl.) need, because there was no fault in His behavior. He had no sin; He had no mistakes. And He is not like sinful humans; and He has been made by God higher than anybody in Heaven.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Therefore Jesus is the highest priest who is exactly suited for us, because he is holy and he has absolutely no faults/lacks or sins. He is different from us sinners and he has also been raised to heaven having no likeness to the highness of his position.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “He is the Most-important Priest who is really suitable for our needs. For his mind/inner-being is always far from all sin. There is really no evil entering his mind/inner-being, and there is nothing at all that can be found fault with with him. There is a big difference between him and us who are sinful and now, God has now given him highest authority in heaven.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Jesus is the high priest who is the greatest one, who is the one we are hunting for (we need). Always all the good is what he does. He does not have sin. Never does he look favorably upon sins of the people. Up there in heaven where he is supremely looked upon with respect, there he is.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
