complete verse (1 Corinthians 14:25)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 14:25:

  • Uma: “With the result that all that is hidden in his heart is exposed. In-the-end he will kneel and worship God and say: ‘It’s really true! God is really in your midst!'” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “But if all of you speak the word of God and a person is coming in there who does not yet believe in Isa Almasi or another person, when he hears the word of God that you speak, he knows that he is sinful and worthy of being punished because God makes known/causes to understand in his liver all the bad things that he has done. Then that person will prostrate and worship God and he will state-that-it-is-true/confess that God is really there among you.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “But, if what everybody does is, they explain what God had caused them to understand in the word of God, then as for that visitor, by means of what he hears he will understand what God is thinking about his evil-thinking. And he will realize that he is sinful and he will repent. And then he will worship God and he will say, ‘It really is true that you are guided by the power of God!'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
