complete verse (Hebrews 9:24)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 9:24:

  • Uma: “For the worship house that Kristus entered into, it is not a house made by mankind that is a figure/symbol for the Worship House in heaven. He really entered into heaven [emphatic]. At this time, he is there in front of God to plead-our-case-as-intercessor.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “For Almasi did not go into the Holy Room made by mankind. For the holy place in the world is only like an image. The real place is there in heaven. But the place he went to was really there in heaven and there he is in the presence of God asking/interceding for us (incl.).” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “That’s why the thing which Christ sacrificed to God was His own blood, and because of this He entered into the real church which is in Heaven. As for the very precious room in the church here on the earth, Christ did not enter there because it is only a shadow of the true church which is in Heaven, and today He is the one who is our chief (a lawyer) who helps us there in the presence of God.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because where-Cristo -entered was not the Holiest Room that people had made that was only an illustration of the exact place of God in heaven but rather it was heaven itself. And that’s where he is now, representing us to God.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Because, as for Cristo, it wasn’t as if where he entered was the Far-from-ordinary Room of that Temple here in the world, which just people made and which was just a picture of the true worshipping-place, but rather really heaven is where- he -entered. And so now, he is there now in the presence of God, standing-up-for us.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “So Christ does not do his work as priest in the church on earth which has been made by people. For the church here on earth is only showing the form of what is in heaven. Christ then, entered heaven where God is in order to help us.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
