complete verse (Hebrews 9:14)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 9:14:

  • Uma: “how much more the blood of Kristus! With the leading of the Holy Spirit who lives forever, Kristus offered himself to God as a worship-gift that has no lack. That blood of his cleans our hearts from all useless deeds, so that we can worship the God who Lives.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “But the blood of Almasi is stronger than the blood of animals. Because he was helped by the Holy Spirit who lives forever, he gave his body that had no spot/blemish as a sacrifice to God. His blood is what cleanses/makes-holy our (dual) thoughts so that we (dual) no longer do the various-things which cannot bring us (dual) to God, so that we (dual) work for God who lives forever.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And if it’s possible that this person could be cleansed by means of just the blood of cows and goats, how much more could be cleansed by means of the blood of Christ. For by means of the help of the Holy Spirit who has no end, Christ sacrificed to God His own body and there was no fault in Him, and by means of our being annointed with His blood, He removed our sins and our trusting in behavior that had no value and because of this, we can now worship the God who has no death.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Therefore if these are able to cleanse people’s bodies, surely the effect of Cristo’s blood is far more valuable. Because his blood is able to cleanse our minds which have-become-unclean because of the useless things we have done in order that we will be able to serve the living God. Because Cristo who has absolutely no faults or sins, he offered his body/himself to God through the power of God’s Spirit who lives forever.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Well if it’s like that, the blood of Cristo which he shed is all the more effective! For by the strength of the Espiritu Santo who has no death he gave his life/breath, he who had nothing at all to be found fault with or any lack in the sight of God. This blood of Cristo is what can cleanse our minds/inner-being from all evil that we have done, which is what takes people to the death which is unending punishment. Therefore now/today, we are now with happy minds/inner-beings serving God who is alive without ending.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “How much greater in power is the blood of Christ then. Because the Holy Spirit who lives forever has strengthened Christ so that he gave himself over to being killed, becoming a sacrifice to God. And this Christ does not have any sin. He shed his blood to clear our sins, those sins which were to cause us to go to the punishment. Now we can be strengthened to worship God, he who truly lives.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
