complete verse (1 Corinthians 12:10)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 12:10:

  • Uma: “To one person is given power to do miracles, to one person is given ability to speak God’s words. To one person also is given knowledge to distinguish what is from the Holy Spirit and what is not from the Holy Spirit. To a different person is given ability to speak with languages from the Holy Spirit. And to one person is also given the knowledge to interpret [lit., move the meaning of] that language so that others can understand it.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “There are some whom he has given power to do powerful deeds/miracles. Others also he gave the expertise to teach God’s word; there are still others to whom it is made known if people’s expertise is from God’s Spirit or from some other (source). And there are also (others) who have been given by God’s Spirit the expertise to speak languages that are not understood by the people. There are also (others) who have been given expertise to explain as to what was said there.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And to another the Holy Spirit gives the power so he can do miracles. And to another yet is given the skill to explain what God has caused him to understand. And to still another is given the skill to identify a supernatural guide, whether it comes from God or whether it is a demon. There are also people whom God gives the skill to speak in languages which they do not know; and there are also people to whom is given the skill to interpret what these people say.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “He moreover gives to another the ability to do miracles, to another the ability to tell what God has made-known, and to still another the ability to be-able-to-distinguish whether or not what was said was from God. To still another, he gives the ability to speak various languages that he doesn’t know, and to still another, he gives the ability to interpret those languages.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “There are others also who have been given the ability to do miracles (lit. amazing things). There are also those whom the Espiritu Santo puts-into-the-mind-of words which God is making known to everyone, and there are also those being graced with the ability to recognize if it is really the Espiritu Santo who is putting-into-the-mind words like this, or if it just the deception of the evil-spirits. There are still others also who are being given the gift of being able to speak different languages that they haven’t studied. And then, in the case of others also, they can explain the meaning these languages that they haven’t studied.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Others are given strength to do miracles. Others, the Holy Spirit puts in their minds the word they are to speak. Others he causes to know well whether the Holy Spirit puts in the mind the words spoken by a person or not. Concerning others, the Holy Spirit causes that they speak different words they did not know. There are some whom the Holy Spirit causes to be able to tell the meaning of these different words which are spoken.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
