complete verse (1 Corinthians 15:54)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 15:54:

  • 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: “When these our (incl.) bodies that eventually die are changed already so that they will no more die, then what is said in the holy-book is fulfilled, it says, ‘Nobody/nothing will anymore die because God has removed death.'” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And when God makes us (incl.) immortal, we who are subject to death, we can no longer die and that word of God will come to pass which says, ‘There is no longer any death because God has already removed death.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “When that happens, that will be the fulfillment of what God caused-to-be-written which says, ‘Death will be thoroughly defeated and will cease-to-exist.'” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Well, when this that perishes has been replaced by that which has no destruction, and when this body which dies has been replaced by one without death, what was said in the written word of God will be fulfilled which says, ‘Death has now been removed. The victory over it is now complete.'” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Our bodies now must die. But when they are changed then our bodies will be forever, they will not die. Then it will occur like it says in the Holy Book: ‘Concerning the death there is, it will lose its power, it will be conquered.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
