complete verse (1 Corinthians 2:11)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 2:11:

  • Uma: “For the one who knows the contents of a person’s heart is he himself. So also, the one who knows the contents of God’s heart is just the Spirit of God.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “For example, nobody knows what’s in a person’s thoughts/mind except he himself. Likewise also nobody knows what is in God’s thoughts/mind except God and God’s Spirit.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Who know what is in the mind of a certain person except only that person knows what is in his own mind, and in the same way also, the Holy Spirit is the only one who knows what is in the mind of God.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because there is no one who knows what is in the mind/thoughts of a person except (lit. if not) he himself. So also with God, there is no one who knows his mind/thoughts if not indeed his Spirit.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For in the case of people, who knows what his fellow-man is thinking, or what is really in his mind/inner-being? Only our own mind/inner-being knows. Well just like that, only the Espiritu Santo knows all the determined-plans of God.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Concerning the person, no one knows what his thoughts are. Only the person himself knows what thoughts he thinks. Also like this is God; no person can know the thoughts of God. Rather only the Holy Spirit knows well what are the thoughts of God.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
