Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 12:28:

  • Uma: “And in your unity/fellowship as Kristen people, God has ordered that each of us have our work: first there are those who are his apostles, second there are prophets who speak his words, third there are those who teach. After that, there are those whom he gave authority to do miracles. After that there are those he gave the authority to heal, those who received ability to help others, those who are leaders, those who received ability to speak with languages from the Holy Spirit.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “God has given different work to do to us (incl.) the ones included in Isa Almasi’s body. Firstly he has commissioned some and told them/commanded them to proclaim the good news about Isa Almasi. Secondly, he gave some the expertise to make-known and explain God’s word. Thirdly, he has given others the work to teach/preach. Others also, some he has given the expertise to do works of power, some are given the power to heal the sick, and there are also whom he has given the expertise to help their companions, some he gave the expertise to be elders in their gatherings and there are also some whom he gave the expertise to speak in languages not understood by the people.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And in this body of all the believers, God has given each person different kinds of work. The first thing that He did was He chose the people whom He made apostles. Second, He gave to others the skill to preach the interpretation of what He caused them to understand. Third, He gave other people the skill to teach His Word, and He gave other people the power to do miracles, and others He gave the power to cure sick people. He gave also others, the skill to help their companions; and to some others He gave the skill to lead the believers; and to others yet, He gave the skill to speak in languages that they did not understand.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “In this-aforementioned body of Cristo, there are those whom God has appointed whose work is mutually-different. First, there are those whom he has appointed as apostles; second, those through-whom-he-speaks; third, those who teach God’s Word; after that those who do miracles, those who have the ability to remove sickness, those who help their companions, those who lead and organize the congregation, and those who have the ability to speak various languages that they didn’t learn.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “And God’s determined-plan for all of us who are believing/obeying Cristo is good. For many are the responsibilities or abilities that he has entrusted. First are apostles, second are the prophets whom he puts-in-the-mind-of words which he is making known to everyone, and third, the teachers of his word. He has also raised up (lit. caused-to-stand) those who can do amazing things, those who can heal the sick, those who know how to help their companions with a happy mind/inner-being, those who know how to lead their companions in the work of the Lord, and those who can speak other languages that they haven’t studied.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “God has given to each one of the believers his work, whatever work he enables each one to do. First of all, God gave the work to the representative of Christ. Second, there are people who were given the work to speak the word put in their minds by the Holy Spirit to speak. Thirdly, there are people who were given the work to teach the word of God. There are people given the work of doing miracles. There are people given the work of healing the sick people. There are people given the work of helping their fellow men. There are people given the work of directing at the church. There are people given the work to speak different words they do not know.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
