complete verse (Hebrews 7:27)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 7:27:

  • Uma: “He is not like other big priests. Those priests, every day they offer worship-gifts, first worship-gifts that pay-for their own sins first, and then they offer worship-gifts that pay-for the sins of the crowds/people. Yesus, just once he offered a worship-gift to God, when he offered himself to be killed. That worship-gift of his does not need to be repeated again ever.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “He is not like the other high priests. They have to sacrifice to God every day to take away their own sins first and then the sins of the people. But Isa sacrificed only once to take away the sins of all mankind and that is what he sacrificed – himself.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “He’s not like those former high priests, because it’s not necessary that He offer sacrifice every day like they did. For every day they offer sacrifice; they first sacrifice because of their own sins and then they sacrifice because of the sins of the people. But as for Jesus, by contrast, His sacrifice was done only once and He never repeated it. He did this when He allowed Himself to be killed on the cross.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Jesus is not like the other highest priests who daily need to have that which they offer to God for their sins and then they also sacrifice-an-offering for the sins of the collective-people. Because Jesus, he offered himself once only to God for the sins of the collective-people. That death of his, it suffices forever.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “He is really not like those others who were also called Most-important Priest in the past. For as for them, every day they would make sacrifices with which to ask-for forgiveness for sin, first their own sin and then the sin also of other people. But, as for this Jesus, once only he made himself like a sacrifice as-a-means of asking for forgiveness for the sin of people. It is not necessary to repeat or yet add to it.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Now concerning the high priests of the Jews, day after day they offer sacrifices to God for their own sins. After that they offer sacrifices to clear the sins of the rest of the people. But this Jesus gave himself up to be killed. He became a sacrifice for the people forever. Yet just one time he died.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
