complete verse (1 Corinthians 10:13)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 10:13:

  • Uma: “Every kind of temptation that hits us, is temptation that usually happens to mankind. But God always remembers his promise to us: he will not let us be tempted more than our ability. When we are hit with that temptation, he will always give us a way to flee from that temptation, so that we will be strong to endure it.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “All the different kinds of temptation/tempters that have come to you, those are also the temptations/tempters that come to all mankind. But God is really trustworthy, therefore he will not abandon you to be tempted if you cannot endure it, because if the temptation/tempter comes, God will help you so that you can endure that temptation/tempter and so that you will be freed/come out of that.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Anything that Satan uses to tempt us is not new, because he always uses things like this to tempt people. But we can trust God because He will not permit us to be tempted above what we are able to endure. He will always give us strength so that there may be a means of avoiding, so that we might not do evil.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “You have not experienced any temptation that other people have not also been-experiencing. And God is faithful, because he will not allow for you a temptation that you are not able to fight, but rather he will give you the ability/power you need so that you will be able to avoid sin.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “But there is no temptation/test that has come to you that your fellowman is also not experiencing. But you can be sure of the help of God that he will not allow you to be tested in excess of your ability. But rather, when you are tested, he will give you strength with which to be able to overcome this test/temptation.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “If there comes to mind that we will commit sin, this is just like what happens to all the rest of the people. But God does not separate from us, he will help us that our hearts will not be conquered by evil. Whenever there comes the evil thought, God will help so that we can overcome the evil so that we will not do it.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
