complete verse (Jude 1:9)

Following are a number of back-translations of Jude 1:9:

  • Uma: “Yet even Michael himself, who is the warchief of all the angels, he was not brave / did not dare to disparage or accost the King of Evil-ones. When the prophet Musa died, they argued and fought-over the body of Musa, who would get it. Michael, he did not dare accost the King of Evil-ones with his own authority/power. All he said to him was: "The Lord himself will be angry with you!"” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Even surprise Mika’il, the leader of angels, did not do such a thing. At the time when he and the leader of demons quarreled, when they were arguing as to who should get the body (corpse) of Musa, he did not dare to talk-bad-about/insult the leader of demons. He only said, ‘According to God’s wish.’ (A Yakan expression meaning, God will do the right thing to you.)” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And even Michael, that highest angel of God, he doesn’t do anything like that, for when Moses died long ago, Michael and Satan argued as to whom would be able to own the body of Moses. Michael did not dare to insult Satan. What he said was: ‘God will be the one to rebuke you.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Even moreover the highest angel Miguel, he didn’t dare to do that. Because when he and Satanas quarreled concerning who had the right to take Moses’ corpse, he didn’t speak-evil-of him, but rather he said, ‘The Lord God will be responsible to rebuke you (singular).'” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “But even the chief-leader of the angels who is Miguel, when he and Satanas were disputing about the body of Moises, he didn’t accuse-him-to-his-face with insulting words. Rather, what he said was, ‘I hope the Lord will rebuke you.'” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “The chief angel Michael argued with the devil about taking charge of Moses’ body when he died. But Michael didn’t dare speak evil of the devil and say that he would be punished. Rather he only said, ‘God will rebuke you.'” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
