complete verse (1 Corinthians 6:15)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 6:15:

  • Uma: “Don’t you know, relatives, your bodies are portions of the Body of Kristus. Is it good for us to use our bodies that belong to Kristus to behave wrongly with a loose woman? No indeed!” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “You know that we (incl.) the ones trusting in Isa Almasi, our (incl.) bodies are figuratively parts/belongings of Almasi’s body. It does not hit-the-mark if a person who is considered to be part of Almasi’s body lies with a bad woman.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “You know, don’t you, that we believers, our bodies are parts of the body of Christ. That’s why it’s not possible that we use a part of the body of Christ to sleep with a woman whose activity is filthy.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Don’t you know that the bodies of us believers, they are part of Cristo’s body? If that is so, is it OK if we who are a part of Cristo’s body leave in order that we will be joined to the body of a woman who is a prostitute (lit. whose womanhood is bought)? It cannot be!” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “What’s this, don’t you yet know that, as for us believers, our bodies are now like a part of the body of Cristo? Well then, should we take a part of this body of Cristo and make it a part of the body of a woman whose life-style is not good because she makes her living with her body? That is definitely not allowable.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Do you not know that our bodies are in place of (= represent) Christ’s body? Is it possible that we take away a part of Christ’s body and join it with the body of a woman who is a prostitute? This is not possible!” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
