complete verse (Hebrews 9:8)

Following are a number of back-translations of Hebrews 9:8:

  • Uma: “With this custom, the Holy Spirit teaches us like this: if the first room still is/exists, man(kind) is not yet permitted to enter into the More Holy Room in order to approach God.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Because of this the teaching of the Holy Spirit to us (incl.) is clear that no person can enter the Most Holy Room as long as there is yet the room that is first entered.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “This is what the priests did in the church and by means of this, the Holy Spirit teaches us that while it is still necessary to use that first room called the ‘Precious Room’, ordinary people cannot yet enter into the ‘Very Precious Room.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “By-means-of all those-things, the Holy Spirit makes-known that it was not possible for people to enter the exact place of God if the original commands concerning the Holy and Holiest Room were still being followed.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “In/through an arrangement like that, it is really clear what the Espiritu Santo is saying that in the past, as long as they were still under-the-jurisdiction-of the laws of the first initiated-agreement, it really wasn’t possible for a person to enter the presence of God. For in that worshipping-place of theirs in the past, the people could not go in to the Exceedingly Far-from-ordinary Room.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Concerning this matter here, the Holy Spirit wants that we know about the old agreement which was before. During the time in which the priests worshipped in the first room, there was not permission for anyone to enter into the room which was overflowingly holy.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
