complete verse (1 Corinthians 6:9)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 6:9:

  • Uma: “Don’t you know, relatives, people with bad character, they will not be God’s people in his Kingdom. Don’t be deceived. People who behave wrongly [euphemism for immorality], who worship idols, adulterers, men [males] who marry [lit., use-as-woman] fellow men, women to sleep with fellow women,” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Don’t you know that the people who do bad are not included in God’s ruling? Therefore really think about this, so that you don’t make a mistake. Every one who commits adultery-fornication or worships idols or desires the wife of his companion or does bad with his fellow male or female, they will not be included in God’s ruling.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Certainly you realize that those people whose activities are evil, they cannot be ruled over in the future by God! And because of this, you must carefully think about it so that you won’t make a mistake. Because as for the people whose activities are filthy, who worship false gods, a person who desires someone who is not his wife, a man who lusts after a man and a woman who lusts after a woman.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Don’t you know that those who are doing evil will not join/be-included in God’s ruling? Don’t deceive yourselves, because the adulterer (lit. one-who-womens-with), the one who sleeps-with someone who is not his spouse, the man who sleeps-with his fellow man, and the one who worships idols, they will not be-included in God’s ruling.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Do you not yet know that those who are not dropping/giving-up their sins, (they) really won’t have any inclusion whatsoever in the kingdom of God? Don’t lie to yourselves. For those who behave-immorally with one not their spouse, who serve pretend gods, who take someone else’s spouse (lit. wound the liver of a married person, fig.), those who imitate women when they are in fact men, and those who have sexual relations with their fellow males, they will definitely have no part in the kingdom of God.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Do not be deceived. You know that people who do evil cannot enter where God rules. Adulterers will not enter there. Men who do like women with their fellow men will not enter. Nor will enter those who worship idols.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
