  • Uma: “Yet you [emphatic], even though your companion’s behavior is like that, you are still proud [your hearts are still high]! Actually, you should be angry/sad [lit., your heart should hurt] over such behavior, [you should] make-him-depart from your midst.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)

  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And in spite of that, you are still puffed up. Perhaps you’re thinking that what you’re doing is very good. It would be far better if you were sorrowful. It would have been better if you had not permitted that man to go around with you.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “And there you are still proud (lit. your thoughts still high). You ought to be extremely sad (lit. your thoughts…painful) so that you would remove the one who did that-aforementioned evil.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
