complete verse (Jude 1:7)

Following are a number of back-translations of Jude 1:7:

  • Uma: “Remember also the towns of Sodom and Gomora long ago with the towns around them. Those townspeople did evil deeds like what was done by the angels [we talked about] earlier. They behaved wrong [implies sexual behavior], and they did deeds that were so evil, to the point that their towns were wiped-out with fire. God’s punishing of the people of Sodom and Gomora is/became an example to all people, and can be compared to the fire of hell that never dies-down, that punishes all God’s enemies.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Remember also the people in Sodom and Gomora and in the surrounding towns. They were like those angels because their doings were not right/fitting. It wasn’t just women who were their companions in ‘doing-things’ (immoral things understood) but even with their fellow males did they do dirty things. They were sent unextinguishable fire to punish them, so that all mankind would have an example.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Consider also the inhabitants in the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah and the towns nearby them. They became like those angels, for their doings were excessively evil. As for the men there, it was not only women that they meddled with, but rather, they lusted for each other being completely male, and because of that they were punished with fire. And that became a warning of God to all in the future whom he will punish with fire which cannot be extinguished.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Remember also those who resided in Sodoma and Gomorra and the neighboring (lit. mutually-across-the-way) towns. Their sins, they were similar to the sinning of those-aforementioned angels who slept-with those whom they had no right to sleep-with, because they were-sleeping-with those who were not their spouses, and the men among them, they were craving to sleep-with their fellow men. Therefore God burned them and their towns, and that is what serves-as-a-warning to us that those who don’t believe, God will punish them in/with fire that is never extinguished.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Consider also what happened to the people of Sodoma and Gomorra and their neighboring towns, for they sinned like those angels. Because they really got themselves used to immoral-behavior with ones who were not their spouse, and far more disgusting, being unnatural. Those towns and all the people from there were all burned up, because that was their punishment. Well as for that, it’s like a dissuasion for us, for it’s an illustration of the fire that never dies down, which is the certain punishment which will be arrived at by the sinful.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “And remember what God did to the inhabitants of the city of Sodom and the city of Gomorrah along with other cities round about them. People lived in them who committed adultery like the people who are among you commit adultery. There were some of them who committed sexual acts with other men as though they were women. But the cities burned in order that all who commit sin would know that there is a punishment with fire forever.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
