complete verse (Hebrews 9:12)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 9:12:

  • Uma: “He entered into that tent, [and went] straight into the More Holy Room coming-before God. And the blood that he brought when he entered, it was not the blood of male goats or the blood of calves. He entered bringing his own blood. That entering of his was just one time, and it does not need to be repeated, for with his blood that he brought, he redeemed our sins forever.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “And when Isa entered the place that is figuratively like the Most Holy Room, he entered only once (and) all came to fruition. And he did not take with him into it the blood of goat and cow sacrifices but that is what he took his own blood to take away our (incl.) sins, therefore we (incl.) have salvation forever.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And He has only entered once into that very precious room in the church which is there in Heaven and He will not do it again. He did not enter there to offer the blood of just animals like goats and young cows, but rather he entered there to sacrifice His own blood and because of this sacrifice of His body, He made it possible that our being freed from punishment is without end.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “His entering there, it was not by-means-of the blood of goats and male cows but rather by-means-of his own blood, and only once did he enter, it was not necessary to be repeated, because he had already fulfilled what needed to be done so that we might be set-free and be saved forever.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “This Cristo, he entered only once in the Exceedingly Far-from-ordinary Room which is in heaven. That once was enough. And it wasn’t blood of goats and young cows that he took with-which-to-ask-for endless forgiveness, but rather really his own blood, this really being with-what-he-took-the-punishment for the sin of us people so that we would be saved without ending.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Christ has now gone into the place which is overflowingly holy. But concerning the blood he takes to offer, it is Christ’s own blood which is offered. It isn’t the blood of cows or goats which is offered like the priests do here on earth. And he does not have to keep going in; rather one time only he went in forever in order to save us.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
