complete verse (1 Corinthians 15:44)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 15:44:

  • Uma: “What is buried are our bodies that are fit to live in this world. But when we are caused to live again, our bodies are changed to become bodies that are fit to live in heaven because of the power of the Holy Spirit. Our bodies at this time are bodies that are fit to dwell on the earth. Our bodies in the future day are bodies that are fit to dwell in heaven.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “A person’s body that gets buried is fit only for one’s life here in this world. But when God makes him alive again, his new body will be fit/worth for one’s life in heaven. If there is a kind of body that is fit only to dwell in the world, there will be also a body fit to dwell in heaven.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “When these bodies are buried they are of the world; but when they are raised again, they will be new bodies, fitting to live in Heaven because they will have been made immortal. If there is a body which is of the earth, there must also be a body which is fitting to live in Heaven.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “We have a body now that is appropriate for life on the earth, and so also the one-who-lives again has a body which is appropriate for life in heaven.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “As for this body which dies, it is a fitted-for-earth body. But when it will be made to live again, it will then be a fitted-for-heaven body. For if there is a fitted-for-earth body, there is also a fitted-for-heaven body.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Our bodies here on earth will be buried. But when we are resurrected then we will not be able to die. Because there is the body of a person which will die, yet there is the body of the person which will not die.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
