Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Peter 5:5:

  • Uma: “So also you whose are is still young, submit to the elders. All of you should be humble [lit., make your hearts low] and help each other. For ‘God opposes people whose hearts are high, but he loves the people whose hearts are low.'” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Na, you also the men who are still young, follow the teachings of the elders. And you all should help each other with lowly/humble livers. For the holy-book says hep, ‘God is against/opposes those with a haughty liver but he has pity/mercy on those with a lowly/humble liver.'” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “As for you young people, I beg you to submit yourselves to the elders. You must not hold yourselves high, rather you must help each other for there is a written Word of God which says, ‘God is against those who hold themselves high, but He pities them who do not hold themselves high.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “You also who are younger-siblings, you must submit-yourselves to (lit. cause-yourselves-to-be-ruled-by) your older-siblings (understood as anyone older). All you who believe, you must humble yourselves (lit. lower your bodies) to your companions so that you may serve-one-another. Because there is that which God caused-to-be-written which says, ‘God opposes the one who is proud (lit. makes-high his thoughts), but he is-kind-to/shows-mercy-to the one who is humble.'” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Well you young-folk also, submit well to the management of the elders who are in charge of you. And all of you must be humble, serving one another. Because it has been said in the writing, ‘God really opposes the ones who are arrogant, but his grace/mercy is big which he gives to the humble.'” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Also I speak to the young men. Obey those who lead where you meet. And now, to all of you, do not be proud when you speak. Because God does not approve of the one who is proud. He gives grace to those who are not proud.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
