complete verse (1 Corinthians 15:27)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 15:27:

  • Uma: “Like is written in the Holy Book: ‘God will cause all his enemies to submit to Him.’ So we clearly know that all will be caused to submit to Kristus. The only thing that will not be caused to submit to Him is God alone, for he is the one who causes all to submit to Kristus.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “It is written in the holy-book, it says, ‘He was commanded by God to rule over everything.’ It is clear that God is not included in Isa Almasi’s ruling because God is the one who commanded him to be the ruler.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “For there is a written word of God which says, ‘As for God, He will make Christ rule over everything;’ and we know that, as for that which is called everything, God is not included in that everything that Christ will rule over.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “We know that even the dying of people, he will defeat–it, because the written word of God says, ‘Absolutely-everything that exists, God has made-it-subject-itself to (lit. caused-it-to-have-itself-be-ruled by) him.’ We understand of-course that God is not included in subjecting-himself to Cristo, because he of-course is the one who made-everything -subject-itself to him.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Because it was indeed said in the written word of God that, as for all things, he has made them to be just what-gets-crushed-under-foot(fig.) by the Savior, for he has now defeated them. But in these words ‘all things’ God is not included as-might-be-said, for he is the one who ordained that Cristo would rule/control all these.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Because God gave the position to Christ that he rule all that there is. Now this does not mean that Christ rules his Father. Because it is his Father who gave Christ the position of ruling all there is.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
