complete verse (Hebrews 9:28)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 9:28:

  • Uma: “Thus also Kristus, just one time he offered himself to God to carry[-on-his-shoulders] the sins of the people. And the time will come he will appear the second time in this world. That coming will not be to carry[-on-his-shoulders] sin. He will come then, he will carry/bring goodness [salvation] to people who wait for his arrival.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Likewise Almasi also died only once but he sacrificed his body in order to take-away the sin of the people. And he will come again no longer to take-away sin but he will come to save the ones who are waiting for him.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And as for Christ also, He died only once which was the sacrifice of His body so that He might remove the sins of many people. And Jesus will again come down here on earth, not to remove our (incl.) sins, but rather He will finish freeing everybody whose expectancy of Him is very great.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Likewise also Cristo’s being offered to bear/undergo the sins of people was once only. So when he comes again, it will not be because of our sins but rather he will come to completely save all who are waiting for him.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Well, just like that, just once also Cristo was made a sacrifice, so that he would take-the-punishment-for the sin of people/humanity. And he will indeed return here again, however that is not in order to take-the-punishment-for the sin of people, but rather in order to just fetch all those who are waiting-eagerly-for him, because it will then be the time for the completion of their salvation.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Like that, Christ died only one time, he became a sacrifice. Very many people did he clear of their sins. And now again he will come, but he will not be coming again to pay for the people’s sins. Rather he will come to save those who are waiting for him to come.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
