complete verse (1 Corinthians 5:5)

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

  • Uma: “you just hand-him-over into the authority of the King of Evil-ones. Meaning, you order him to leave your fellowship, don’t allow him to attend-services with you. Do this so that he will get punishment in his body, and his soul will get goodness [salvation] when the Lord Yesus comes.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “So-then from/by Almasi’s authority, hand over that sinner to the power of Satan (lit. leader of demons) so that his body will be punished so that his soul will be saved when our (incl.) Leader Isa Almasi will come here to judge mankind.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And I command you by means of the authority that our Lord Jesus Christ has given, that you abandon that person and you give him to Satan, so that his body might be destroyed, and then his soul will be saved from punishment by God in the future on the day when our Lord Jesus Christ judges people.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Turn-over that-aforementioned man to Satanas so that Satanas will hardship his body in order that his spirit will be saved on the day when the Lord will come again.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “that person who is behaving disgustingly, remove him from your group returning him to the control of Satanas, so that hopefully he will repent/be-sorry-for his indulging of his disgusting desires. For if it’s like that, he will indeed be saved on that day when the Lord judges.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Concerning this man who did the sin, throw him outside from where you are, he is to go where the people whom the devil commands live, there he will suffer in his body. Perhaps his soul will be saved when the day arrives when the Lord Jesus comes.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
