complete verse (1 Peter 1:11)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Peter 1:11:

  • 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)
  • Yakan: “God’s Spirit who was there with them made-known/revealed to them about the suffering/persecution Almasi endured and about his being made great/honored when those sufferings/persecutions were over. They really wanted to know when this would happen and how this would happen, therefore they studied.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “They studied as to when and how this would be fulfilled, for they were inspired to do this by the Holy Spirit who comes from Christ. He caused them to understand that there would be tribulations which Christ would have to endure here on the earth. And when those were finished, He would be made very high.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because even though they were the spokesmen (lit. place-of-speaking) of the Spirit of Cristo when he predicted Cristo’s suffering and his being-made-high which followed, they still repeatedly-searched to find-out koma the time of its fulfillment and the way it would be fulfilled.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For they really wanted to comprehend at what time and in what way these things would happen which they were caused to tell by the Espiritu Santo of Cristo. Because those things they were caused to tell were alluding to (lit. hitting) none other than the hardships which would be experienced by Cristo and the praise/glory which would be its outcome.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Because Christ caused that the Holy Spirit accompanied these prophets. This Holy Spirit caused them to write the word that Christ must suffer and afterwards it would be seen that no one is as great as he. But these prophets then wanted to know about what person he would be or what day he would live. And they very much searched in order to understand this word.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
