complete verse (1 Corinthians 4:5)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 4:5:

  • Uma: “So, relatives, don’t talk-about others whether their work is good or not. Wait for the Lord to come again. He’s the one who will uncover/expose all that is hidden in the dark, he will make-appear all the purposes in the heart of mankind. At that time every person will get praise for God as is appropriate.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Therefore don’t find fault with your companions as long as the time for judgment has not yet come. When our (incl.) Leader Isa Almasi comes back he will judge. He will tell the doings of people that they hid. He will also tell what people planned/intended in their livers. Then God will praise the people each one about/because of the work they did.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Therefore, let us (incl.) not rebuke our companions, but rather let’s wait until our Lord Jesus Christ returns; He will reveal at that time the hidden works of people today, and He will cause to be known the things that people think about which are not yet known. And then every person will find out whether there is anything which he has that God can praise him for or not.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Therefore don’t be judging your fellow people ahead-of-time. Wait until the right time for the Lord to come arrives so that he will be the one to judge. Because he will make-known all that has been hidden, including the thoughts and motives of people. And then God will praise each one in proportion to what he deserves.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Therefore do not pass judgment on anyone as to whether their serving is good or not. Wait for the time of judgment at the return of the Lord. He will certainly expose the things that at the moment are hidden in darkness (fig.). And he will also expose even the ulterior motives of each one. And then each one will receive praise from God which is fitting for what each one has done.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “So do not any of you judge while the day on which will come our Lord Jesus Christ has not yet come. It is he who will judge who all have done good, and who all have not done correctly. He it is who knows what all is thought in the mind of each person. Concerning what will be found, God will pay to each person accordingly.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
