  • Yakan: “Others of them put out great fires and some of them were not killed by their enemies. Some of them were weak but became strong. They were very bold in war/fighting and they defeated crowds of soldiers from different/other tribes.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And others yet, because of their faith, they were not burned by the very hot fire, and others yet were not killed by their enemies.

They became very brave in fighting and they destroyed the soldiers of their enemies.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “others, they weren’t burned when they were thrown into the strong fire, and others also, they escaped/avoided people who would have killed them. Others were weak, but God made them strong. Still others, they became-strong to wage-war, and they caused-to-flee the soldiers who came-from other countries to fight-with them.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “There were (those who) were not harmed by even really-fiercely burning fire, and still others were saved from the edge of bladed-weapons. Even though others were weak, God gave them far-from-ordinary strength so that they would be victorious in warfare, in which they put-to-flight hordes of soldiers of other nations who were waging-war against them.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Some were put in fire, yet were not burned. Some were in danger of being killed by sword, yet escaped. People who were considered not to be anything were strengthened to war and conquer their enemies.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
