complete verse (1 Peter 1:10)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Peter 1:10:

  • Uma: “The prophets long ago foretold the blessing that you have received now, relatives, they foretold how God [would] show you his love at this time. From the leading of the Spirit of Kristus in their hearts, God made known to them the suffering(s) that would strike the person [lit., body] of Kristus and the bigness of life that he would receive when those sufferings were past. But those prophets long ago, they did not know how what they foretold would come to pass. That is why they really investigated, they wanted to know when and how the fulfilling/happening of all that they foretold [would be].” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
