complete verse (Jude 1:5)

Following are a number of back-translations of Jude 1:5:

  • Uma: “So relatives, actually you do know all this. But even so, I want to remind you about the Lord God’s punishing of to people whose deeds are/were evil. Long ago the Lord freed the Yahudi people from the land of Mesir. But afterwards there were some who did not believe him. Some of those people he killed in the wilderness [lit., uninhabited prairie].” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Even though you know this already I would just like to remind you about the tribe of Isra’il at the time when they were slaves in the land of Misil. God brought them out of the land of Misil but after that he killed the ones who did not believe-obey him.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “You already know what I am saying, however I will say it again to you so that you won’t forget it. Long ago God set free his chosen people and caused them to leave the kingdom of Eygpt. However after they had gone out, he killed some of them who would not trust him.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “You have already come-to-know all that I am going to tell you concerning God’s punishing of those who sinned long ago, but I nonetheless want to remind you. Remember that God saved/rescued his people when he led them in leaving Egipto, but after that he punished those who didn’t believe and-so they died.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Therefore even though of course you indeed know this, I want anyway to remind you that, although God saved/freed the Israelita from their slavery in Egipto, however he exterminated some of their number/companions who did not belief/obey and trust him.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Even though now you know this word which I will tell you, nevertheless I want to remind you of the word about what God did. Because when he took out the Israel people from the land of Egypt, afterwards he killed those who did not believe what he said.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
