complete verse (1 Peter 3:18)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Peter 3:18:

  • Uma: “For Kristus also received suffering even though he had no wrong. He died just one time to carry the sins of mankind. He who had no wrong took the place of us who are wrong, in order to bring us to God. His body was killed, but he was made alive again by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Remember that Almasi also endured/suffered and/but he had no sin. But he died because of our (incl.) sin so that we (incl.) the sinners he could reconcile (us (incl.)) with God. Isa Almasi died because of our (incl.) sins and he really will not die again. They killed his body but his soul is living.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Christ allowed Himself to be killed only once so that our sins might be forgiven. He allowed Himself to be killed so that He might become the the righteous substitute for us unrighteous people, so that we might become the possession of God. His body was killed, but His soul was still alive,” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because Cristo also suffered and died because of our sins. Once only was his dying, it doesn’t need to be repeated. He who is righteous, he died for us who are sinful in order that he might bring-us-near to God. They killed his body, but his spirit lived/lives-on.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Like Cristo who, even though he has no sin, however he was persecuted/caused-hardship being killed because of us who are sinners. Through that one-time thing which he did he took the punishment for our sin so that he could cause us to return to God. His body really died but he was indeed made alive by the supernatural-power of the Espiritu Santo.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Christ suffered in that he was killed. In that way were acquitted all our sins forever. Christ, who was a good person, died because of our sins in order to make us right with God. Truly Christ’s body died, but his spirit did not at all die.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
