complete verse (1 Timothy 1:19)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Timothy 1:19:

  • Uma: “Strengthen your faith, and always do good deeds like you know in your heart. There are several people who no longer regard all this, with the result that their faith is wrecked/destroyed.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Cause your trust in Isa Almasi to be firm/steadfast and don’t do anything evil so that your thinking/mind will not be troubled. Because there are (some) people, they determine to/purposely do (something) even though they know in their thinking/mind that that deed is bad/evil. Therefore their trust in God is destroyed.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Your weapon is your faith in the true doctrine and your obeying everything which you know to be right. There are some people who have not obeyed what they know to be right. And because of this, they have come to believe something different.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “In your (singular) fighting evil, persevere in believing and be-sure-to take-care that your (singular) conscience (loan konsensia) is clean, because there are people who since they have turned-a-deaf-ear-to their consciences, they have ruined their faith.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “It’s necessary that your believing/obeying holds fast to the truth and hold fast also to what you know to be in harmony with the will of God. Not like those others, who have now dropped/given-up these things, that being why their believing/obeying has now been destroyed.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “There are some people who know well what is not proper for them to do, but this is what they do. This is what spoils their faith.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
