complete verse (1 Corinthians 15:15)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 15:15:

  • Uma: “More than that, it is clear that we (excl.) have given lying testimony, for in God’s name we (excl.) said he caused Kristus to live again. Yet if it’s really true that the dead aren’t caused to live again, it means that God didn’t cause Kristus to live again.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “And not only that. If for example it were true what you say that God will not make alive again the dead, na that means God also did not make Isa Almasi alive again. If it is like that, it means we (excl.) have lied about God because we (excl.) said that he has made alive again Isa Almasi but that is, they say, not true.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And that’s not all, because if that is true then we are just false servants of God, because we have been teaching that as for God, He raised Christ up from the dead. But, if it’s true that He does not raise the dead, then Christ has not been raised.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Not only that but also it will become-known that what we (excl.) have been saying about God is a lie, because we have confirmed that he made-Cristo -alive again. But if it’s true that he won’t/doesn’t make-the dead -alive again, it’s not also true that he made-Cristo -alive.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Well, if it’s like that, will it not turn out that as for us (excl.), we are lying apostles for we are testifying that God did make Cristo to live again, but it would turn out that that is not in fact true after all if the dead will not be made to live again.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Then the word we speak is a lie when we tell you about God. Because we tell you the God caused that Christ was resurrected after he died. If it is not true that dead people resurrect, then it is apparent that it is not true that God caused that Christ resurrected then.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
