complete verse (Hebrews 8:3)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 8:3:

  • Uma: “Every Big Priest is appointed [lit., lifted] in order to offer livestock and other worship-gifts of the people to God. Thus also with Yesus our Big Priest, there must certainly also be a worship-gift that he offers to God, that is his own self/body.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “All high priests are given the work to give/pass-on to God the gifts of the people and their sacrifices. Na, our (dual) High Priest likewise also has to have that which he sacrifices.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Now when there’s a high priest here on the earth, he is commanded to make blood sacrifices and to make offerings to God. In the same way also it’s necessary that our (incl.) high priest has something to sacrifice.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “All highest priests, they are appointed to offer to God animals and other kinds of offerings that the people give, so our highest priest, he also needs to have something to offer to God.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Really, the responsibility/job of each Most-important Priest is doing/making the thank-offerings and the sacrifices with-which-to-ask for forgiveness for sin. That’s why, as for this Most-important Priest of ours, it’s not possible that there is not also what he would do which is a means of asking for forgiveness.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Concerning the work which the high priest has, he is appointed to offer sacrifice to God. Therefore Jesus Christ also must offer sacrifice to God.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
