complete verse (Hebrews 9:26)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 9:26:

  • Uma: “For if it were like that, certainly from the creation of the world many times he would have undergone suffering to the point of dying. So, in this time close to the Kiama Day, he has appeared just one time in this world to wipe-away the sins of mankind by his giving of himself to be killed.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Because if he would do that often, that would mean that he suffered and died often since the world was created. But this is what he did, he came here only once in a human body when the world was coming close to the end and he took-away/removed the sin of mankind because he sacrificed his own body.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “because if that were necessary, beginning from the creation of the world, He would have to suffer dying many times. But that is not necessary because what He did in this time when the world would soon come to an end is: He appeared so that He might remove our (incl.) sins by offering His own body. And He did this only once.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because if of course he had done that, he ought to have suffered many-times beginning from the creation of the world. But the truth of it is, he came only once to this earth in these last days in order to remove sin by means of his offering of himself.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For if Cristo needed to constantly shed his blood would that not mean that he would have had to die over and over again since the creation of the world? But it was not like that but rather, now/today, at this time of the fulfilling of all that was being done in the past, once only he came-down here to the world in order to erase the sin of people. What he erased it with was his own blood which he shed on that one occasion.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “If it were that he kept on dying over again, then all the way back to when the world was made, he would have been dying over and over. But what has actually happened is that when it was going on to end these days, then Christ arrived here and gave up himself to be put to death. but only one time he died in order to become the sacrifice forever. He paid for all the sins of people.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
