Apollos watered

In the Kilivila culture nobody waters plants, so in the Kilivila translation the Greek that is translated into English as “Apollos watered” is rendered as “Apollos erected the yam-stake.” (Source: David Clark)

The translators into Angal Heneng solved that same problem by translating this as “pulled the weeds.” (Source: Consultant Notes)

as numerous as the sand on the seashore

The Greek and Hebrew that is translated as “as numerous as the sand on the seashore” or “as numerous as the sand by the sea” in English is translated in Bauzi as “as many like the tree flowers of the jungle.” (Source: David Briley in Kroneman 2004, p. 539)

In Afar it is translated as mari mangah arrooqih gide akkuk yeneeniih: “are as numerous as gravel” or loowo sinni: “not countable.” (Source: Loren Bliese)

In Angal Heneng it is translated as “like the hairs on a dog.” (Source: Deibler / Taylor 1977, p. 1077)

verb forms in Luke 10:18-19

“In Angal Heneng there are three different forms of the verb depending on involvement of speaker and hearer in the action, and all three are illustrated in Luke 10:18-19. When Jesus says, ‘I saw Satan fall,’ it is assumed that the speaker [Jesus] saw the action and the hearers didn’t, and the form of the verb indicates such. When Jesus continues and says ‘I have given you power [or: authority],’ the form used indicates that both speaker and hearers were together when the action occurred. But on the verb of the clause expressing ‘Jesus said to them,’ a third form is used which indicates that neither the writer (Luke) nor the addressee (Theophilus) were there at the time the inci­dent occurred.” (Source: Deibler / Taylor 1977, p. 1076.)
