complete verse (1 Corinthians 2:13)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 2:13:

  • Uma: “So, when we (excl.) announce the Good News, we (excl.) announce it not with our (excl.) cleverness in speaking. We(excl.) announce it with words that are from the Holy Spirit, we (excl.) make clear the teaching from the Holy Spirit to people who have received the Holy spirit.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “When we (excl.) preach we (excl.) do not use human knowledge. But that is what we (excl.) preach what the Spirit of God teaches us (excl.). And the true teaching from the Spirit of God is what we (excl.) preach to the people who-have/where-there-is God’s Spirit.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And because of this, the things that we teach is that which has been taught to us by the Holy Spirit, and not what was taught to us by just wise people. That which comes from the Holy Spirit, that’s what we teach to people who are also guided by the Holy Spirit.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Therefore in our (excl.) teaching about God, we (excl.) don’t use words based on people’s wisdom/knowledge but rather words that God’s Spirit teaches us (excl.).” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Well now, these things are what we (excl.) are teaching, but they do not originate from the perception/understanding or education here in the world, but rather this Espiritu Santo really is their source. Those things which the Espiritu Santo is making known to people, we (excl.) are teaching in words that the Espiritu Santo is putting-in-our -minds.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Therefore this word I speak is not the word of my own thinking. Rather the Holy Spirit teaches me the word I speak to all the people who now walk with the Holy Spirit.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
