complete verse (1 Peter 4:11)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Peter 4:11:

  • Uma: “Whoever carries the Word of God must speak like a person used-as-lips by God. Whoever helps others, help them with the strength that is from God. So that in all that happens God is made big in the name of Yesus Kristus. He is the one who is powerful and who is fitting to have his name made big forever! Amin.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “For example if someone has been given the expertise of preaching, he should preach the message/word of God. If someone has been given the expertise of helping his companions, he should really use his expertise to help them and he should know that God gives him strength so that he can help his companions. Whatever you do, do it well so that the people know that you are able to do it because of Isa Almasi and (so that) they will praise God. He is really worthy to be honored/made great because his power has no end. Amin.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “As for us who preach, it is necessary that our preaching be very correct, just as if God is the one who is preaching. Those of us who help others, we must not forget that what we use to help people with comes from God, so that by means of the power of Jesus Christ, the one who is glorified is God at all times, for He is the one worthy of praise and worthy to be in charge forever.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “The one who preaches, he should remember that what he is preaching is the word of God. The one who serves his companions, he should be industrious to serve, acknowledging that God is the one who is giving (him) his strength. In all that you are doing, see-to-it that God is praised/honored because of Jesu Cristo. He is the honored and powerful-one who rules forever. Amen.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For if you(s) have been graced to be a teacher, you must teach properly the word of God, not just doing-your-own-thing. Supposing you(s) have been graced with ability as a helper of others, attend to it well through the strength of that ability God graced to you. Because all this which you will do through the help of Jesu-Cristo, it really brings praise/glory to God. His supernatural-power and praiseworthiness/glory which have no ending are really-far-from-ordinary. This is the truth.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Those who have been appointed to speak the word, it must be the word of God they speak. Those who have been appointed to help, that which God wants that they do should they do. All that you do, do so that those who believe in Jesus Christ will praise God. He is supreme, and has power forever. Amen.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
