complete verse (1 Corinthians 2:16)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 2:16:

  • Uma: “For thus it is written in the Holy Book: ‘No one knows the thoughts of the Lord, no one can teach him.’ But we, God has given us thoughts that are the same as Kristus’s thoughts.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “The reason that we (incl.) are not understood by the people is, because our (incl.) thinking is like Almasi’s thinking. It is written hep in the holy-book, it says, ‘There is no person who knows what is in the mind/thinking of God. And nobody can teach him.'” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “For there is a written Word of God which says, ‘No one knows what is in the mind of God, and no one also can teach God anything.’ This is what was written long ago, but as for us (incl.) by contrast, we have been told what is in the mind of Christ.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because there is that which God caused-to-be-written which says, ‘Is it indeed-the-case that (RQ implying of course not) there is a person who knows God’s mind/thoughts? Is it indeed-the-case that (RQ implying of course not) someone has-been-able-to-advise him?’ But as for us, we have the mind/thoughts of Cristo.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For does it not say in the writings of the past, ‘Who really can know/figure-out the mind/thinking of God, to be able to give-oversight-to/train him?’ But, we who are believers, our minds/thinking are now being renewed in that they are being made like the mind/thinking of Cristo.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Because written in the Holy Book it says, ‘Which person can know the thoughts of the Lord? Who will say that there lives God’s teacher who teaches him what to do?’ But concerning us, the Holy Spirit who walks with us causes that we understand a bit about the thoughts of Christ.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
