complete verse (1 Peter 3:6)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Peter 3:6:

  • Uma: “For example, Sara followed the commands of Abraham her husband, and called him master. And you, relatives, we can say that you are children of Sara if you follow her good behavior and you are not afraid if there is someone who bothers/persecutes you.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Sara was like that; she always followed/obeyed what her husband Ibrahim wanted and she considered her husband as her master. Now, you women nowadays, if you do good and don’t get easily afraid, you are like descendants of Sara.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “like Sarah, who submitted herself to her husband Abraham. She considered Abraham to be her master. And as for you women today, you can be like children of Sarah if you imitate her activity which was righteous, and if you do not permit your minds to be troubled by fear.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)

  • Tagbanwa: “Like Sara of long ago. She was truly obedient to her husband Abraham, and what she called him was, ‘My Master.’ Well as for you, what you are like is her descendants as long as you persevere in doing good, and you aren’t afraid that you may suffer hardship because of your believing/obeying.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Like this Sarah obeyed Abraham and called him her boss. Sarah did not fear anything, she did what was good. And you are her daughter now if you do like she did.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
