complete verse (Galatians 5:14)

Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 5:14:

  • Uma: “There is a command that says: "We must love our companion as we love ourselves." If we follow this one command, it’s the same as doing all the commands in the Lord’s Law.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Because all commands of the law written by Musa we (dual) (happen-to) follow already if we (dual) follow this one command: ‘Love your companions/fellow men like you love yourselves.'” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “The whole Law which was left behind by Moses can be thoroughly obeyed by means of just one command and it is this: ‘It’s necessary that you treat very well your companion. Think about him as just like your own breath.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because the commands of the law, they are all concentrated in this one command: ‘You (sing.) must love your (sing.) companion like the way-you-love yourself (sing.).'” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Because all these laws that came from God, the theme (lit. thing-(they)-keep-returning-to) is, ‘value your (sing.) fellowman just the same as you value your own body.'” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Because in order to complete what all is written in the law, there is but one word that must be done. It is this word: ‘Love your fellowman like you respect yourself.'” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
