complete verse (Hebrews 9:15)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 9:15:

  • Uma: “While the first promise that was delivered by Musa still was, mankind transgressed the Law of the Lord. That’s why Kristus died to redeem mankind from their transgressions, and he became a mediator who delivers a new Promise, that connects mankind with God. He did that so that all people whom God calls can get the blessings that last forever, like God has promised to his children.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Therefore Isa is the one who established the new covenant so that the people chosen by God can/will receive what God has promised to them, that means eternal life. For Almasi died so that the people can be freed from their wrong doings that they did at the time when they followed the first commands.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And because of this also, Christ has become our chief (lawyer, case-settler, etc.) so that He might establish the new way for us to become one with God; and by means of this, all whom God has caused to believe, they can receive all of the good eternal promised of God. The reason this is possible is because by means of the death of Christ, all of the evil behavior that people did during the time they were subject to the first way, has been cleansed.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Therefore Cristo was the finalizer of the new agreement-which-God -presented so that all whom God had called would be-able-to-inherit what he promised that has no end. And they are able to inherit that, because Cristo died to redeem them so they would be set-free from the sins they had done during the time of the first agreement.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “That’s why, by the strength of his blood which he shed, Cristo made firm this new initiated-agreement. That death of his is with-what-he-saves people from God’s punishment of their sins, when they were still under-the-jurisdiction-of that first initiated-agreement. Therefore all whom God inspired (lit.put-it-in-their-mind) to submit to him, they can now receive the unremoveable good that he promised.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Thus it happened that Jesus Christ made the new agreement which there is now. Therefore those people whom God calls to believe in Christ are the people to whom pertain the good which is forever, which has been promised by God to be given to them. Because Jesus Christ died in order to clear our sins which were committed when the law which was before was in effect.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
