Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 15:45:

  • Uma: “Like is written in the Holy Book: God made the first man, named Adam, and he gave him life. But Kristus can be named the last Adam. He is the one that gives us good live forever.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “For it is written in the holy-book, it says, ‘Grandfather Adam, the first person created by God, he was given life by God and his body was fit to live here in the world.’ But there is also one called the last Adam and this is Isa Almasi. He is the one who gives life everlasting.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “For there is a written word of God which says, ‘That first man Adam, God gave his body breath so that it might live here on the earth.’ But as for Christ, by contrast, that one who is given the title of the last Adam, he is the one who will give life without end so that we might live in Heaven.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “This jives likewise also with what God caused-to-be-written which says, ‘The first person who was Adan, he was given life,’ but there is also the one called Last Adan who is Cristo, and he is the one who gives life that has no end.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For it is written in the writing that that first person, Adan, was created and given life/breath. But superior to this is Cristo, who is called, the last Adan. For his body was replaced by a fit-for-heaven body and he became the giver of fit-for-heaven life which is without ending.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “It says in the Holy Book: ‘Adam, the first person to live, was made by God and God caused that he had life..’ it says. But Christ lives afterward and he was not just a human, he was able to give new life to people.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
