complete verse (1 Corinthians 15:53)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 15:53:

  • Uma: “For these bodies of ours that can die and become rotten must be changed to become bodies that have no death and that cannot become rotten. So, when these bodies of ours are indeed changed, at that time will come to pass the words written in the Holy Book long ago that say: ‘God has defeated death, there is no longer any death.'” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Because this our body which will eventually die, has to be changed so that our body will no more die but live without end.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And when this has already taken place, all of us (incl.) whose bodies are made from the earth, we will be given a body which will no longer die. And as for this body of ours which has no immortality, at that time it will be made immortal.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because this body of ours that easily dies and rots, it must be transformed into a body that never-dies and never-rots.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Because as for this body which perishes, it’s necessary that it be replaced with one which does not perish, and this body which dies, that it be replaced by one which does not die.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Because our bodies do not endure forever, it is necessary for them to be changed so that they will endure forever. So our bodies at the present must die, but when they are changed then they will not die.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
