complete verse (Hebrews 8:2)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 8:2:

  • Uma: “He does the work as-Big-Priest in the holy house, its meaning, the worship house that is in heaven. That worship house is the main worship house that God himself built, not a house that was built by mankind, like the Worship Tent built by Musa long ago.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “There he priests/he is priest in the Most Holy Place, that means in the true prayer-house/temple (from here on temple) which is not made/built by humans but by God.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “He’s carrying out His priesthood there before God in the true house of worship in Heaven, which was not made by people but rather, it was made by God.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “And the location of where-he-is-serving as highest priest is the true location of God which indeed also was made by God, not that which is called the Holiest Room in the Tent that was made by mere people back then.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “He is doing the work of the Most-important Priest in the true worshipping place which is in heaven, that not just people made but rather it was really God.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “He does the work of high priest there in heaven where God is. It is not here in churches made by people where he does his work of high priest.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
