complete verse (John 18:28)

Following are a number of back-translations of John 18:28:

  • Uma: “Early in the morning, Yesus was carried from the house of Kayafas going to the house of the governor. The Yahudi rulers themselves did not enter into the house of the governor, because that governor was not a Yahudi person, and if they entered into a house that was not the house of a Yahudi person, they became dirty according to the laws of their religion, and they were not able to eat the Paskah food.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “It was still early morning (before sunrise) when Isa was brought from the house of Kayapas to the palace of the governor of the Roman tribe, but the leaders of the Yahudi did not go inside the palace for if they went inside a house that was not Yahudi they became defiled and they could not take part in the feast of the Festival For-Remembering.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And then they took Jesus again from the house of Caiphas, and they went to the palace of the Roman governor. It was still early in the morning at that time. The Jews stayed on the outside so that they might not break their custom of being purified. Because if they entered there they would not be permitted to take part in the eating of the Supper of Passing By.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “When Jesus’ being-investigated at Caifas’ house was finished then, it was already getting-light, and the leaders of the Jews took him to the house of Governor Pilato. But they refused to enter, lest they be counted as having-been-made-dirty and be prohibited from joining-in-eating at the fiesta called Passed-By.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Coming from the house of Caifas, the Judio next took Jesus to the house of the Romano governor. It was dawn at that hour. The Judio didn’t enter the house of the governor, so that they wouldn’t be regarded as not possible/acceptable to eat the evening-meal of Passed-by.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Jesus was then taken from the house of Caiaphas to the palace where the governor was. It was early. The Jews did not enter the palace. It was their custom that said they could not mingle with non-Jews when they were going to celebrate. If they should go in, they said that then they couldn’t eat at the Passover celebration.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
