complete verse (1 Peter 1:12)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Peter 1:12:

  • Uma: “God said to those prophets: that which they foretold, it was not to them that it would happen [lit., they were not the falling-on-place]. What they foretold, you [emphatic] are the ones to whom it will happen. And now, what those prophets long ago foretold, is announced with all clearness to you, because there were people who told you the Good News with the power of the Holy Spirit from God. Even the angels very much want to investigate the goodness [i.e., salvation] that you have received, relatives.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “But God made-it-known/revealed to them that what they foretold was not for their (own) good but for the good of the people in the future, that means for yours. And now this is already fulfilled, because you have already heard the people who proclaimed the good news to you for they have been given power by the Holy Spirit who was sent from heaven. Even the angels want to know about this.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “God revealed to them that that which they prophesied would not be for their good, but rather for ours today. And now the truth about that which they prophesied has been preached to you. There are people whom God sent to tell you the Good News. The Holy Spirit which was sent from God inspired them. And as for this which they preached to you, even the angels of God in heaven desire to understand this.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “And God made-known to them that what they were saying, it would not result in their benefit back then but rather your benefit now. Because that-aforementioned that they were saying, that is also what was said by those who preached the good news to you through the power of the Holy Spirit whom God sent from heaven. Even the angels, they intensely-want to understand these-things properly.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “But they were enlightened by God that, not in their time but rather in our time now, these things which they were caused to tell would be fulfilled. As for these things, these are what is being taught to you by those going-teaching the Good News through the help of the Espiritu Santo who was caused by God to indwell our bodies. Really even the angels , they are very much trying-to-understand these things.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “It was revealed to them that it would not be known what the word they wrote meant until it would be known in these days we live in. Now, what the prophets wrote, now you have understood what it meant when you were told the good news. Because those who told you this word were empowered by the Holy Spirit who was sent from heaven. Now you know the word which the angels of God want to know more about.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
