complete verse (1 Corinthians 1:30)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 1:30:

  • Uma: “It is only because of God that we are connected with Kristus Yesus. Because of Kristus Yesus, we have come to know the wisdom of God: he is the one who has made us straight in God’s sight, he made us holy to be his portion, and he released us from all that is evil.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “But you have been made one by God with Isa Almasi and Almasi was made by God the source of our knowledge. Because of Isa Almasi we (dual) are considered straight by God. He also made us (dual) his people and caused us (dual) to be free from the judgment of our (dual) sins.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And in spite of this, God made it so that we (incl.) are made one with Jesus Christ and He has made it also that we have wisdom which comes from Christ; and by means of Christ God has considered us righteous and we’ve been made to become people also who belong to God, and He redeemed us from our slavery to evil-doings.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because God is the one who joined us to Cristo Jesus, and he made-Cristo -into the source of our wisdom. Through him, we are counted as righteous, we become God’s holy people, and we are set-free.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Even us, our (status) of being-united/tied-together with Cristo Jesus has really originated with God. And this Cristo Jesus has been made our means-of-recognizing God’s true wisdom, what is meant by this wisdom being that we are now righteous in God’s sight, for we have now been freed from sin’s enslaving of us, so that we would now live lives far from all sin.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “God himself wanted (= caused) that we walk with Jesus Christ. God caused that because of Christ we know concerning the word of God. Now by Christ we are at peace with God. And it is Christ who caused that we now are in the hand of God. Because it is Christ who paid for our sins.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
