complete verse (Jude 1:11)

Following are a number of back-translations of Jude 1:11:

  • Uma: “Disaster-on-them!/They-are-doomed! They follow the road that Kain went-on long ago. They take-after the behavior of Bileam, for although they know what they are doing is wrong, they do it anyway because they desire money. They oppose God like Korah long ago, and because of their opposition they also will die, punished by God like Korah long ago.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “They are really to be pitied. They imitate/join-in the customs of Kabil, the child/son of Grandfather Adam. They also follow the doings of Bala’am. Because of his craving for money he was willing to lead the people astray from God if only he was paid for it. And like Kora who stood-up/rebelled against Musa in the old times, they also stand-up/rebel against God and they will finally be destroyed/perish like Kora.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Pity them! They have imitated the behavior of Cain long ago. They have imitated the way of Balaam which was a great mistake, for even though they know that what they are doing is evil, they do it just the same for they are lovers of money. Just like Corah rebelled against God, they have rebelled also, and they will be punished just as Corah also was punished.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “They are to-be-pitied because their punishment is fearful! Because they are following-the-example-of Cain’s evil behavior, they persist also in sinning like Balaam’s going-astray because of their greediness-for (lit. grabbing-after) money, and they moreover oppose their leaders like Kora’s opposition to Moses back before. In-the-future indeed (prophetic formula) they will be punished forever just like the punishment of Kora.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “What will happen to these people really makes- one’s hair -stand-on-end(fig.), because they haven’t deviated from the trail/way of evil which was followed by Cain. They are also like Balaam , for just so that they can get money, they easily/quickly cause others to fall(fig.) into sin. They are rebelious, like Core who challenged Moises. As for that Core, he was sentenced to very heavy/severe punishment. Well these people will be like that too, for they certainly will be punished so that they won’t be able to stand (fig., meaning thoroughly defeated).” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “These people now, how great the suffering they will have! Because they follow the evil Cain did. And now they commit sin in order to gain money, like Balaam did. But they will perish like Korah perished because of not wanting to do what God said to do.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
