complete verse (1 Corinthians 7:13)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 7:13:

  • Uma: “So also if a Kristen woman has a husband who is not a Kristen, and that man wants to stay with her, she is not to separate from him.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “For example also the woman is the one trusting in Isa Almasi but her husband does not, if her husband still wants to be one with her she shall not ask her husband to divorce her.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And the same thing is true of a woman who has believed. She must not divorce her unbelieving husband if the husband does not wish to divorce.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “As for you married-couples also where one believes and his/her spouse does not, this is what I tell you. This isn’t a command of the Lord Jesus, because he said nothing about this. If the one who doesn’t believe agrees that they continue as a married-couple, the believer should not divorce/separate-from him/her.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Well, in the same way, if a woman who is a believer is married to an unbeliever, but the man wants their marriage to continue, the woman shouldn’t separate-from/divorce him.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “And if a woman has a husband who isn’t a believer, but the husband looks well upon living with his wife, then the wife should not separate from her husband.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
