complete verse (1 Timothy 4:1)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Timothy 4:1:

  • Uma: “The Holy Spirit tells us clearly what will happen in the coming days. At that time, some people will retreat from their faith in the true teaching. They will submit to influences/spirits that lead-astray and they will follow teaching that is from demons.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Really clear is what the Spirit of God said that in the future there will be people who reject/turn-their-back-on the true teaching. What they will listen to are the demons and they will follow their teachings.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “The clear teaching of the Holy Spirit is that in the future at the last time there will be people who will not believe the true teaching, but rather, what they will obey is what is given in inspiration by lying spirits. They will obey what evil spirits teach them” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “It is clear what the Holy Spirit has made-known that in a future day there will be those who abandon the correct faith, because they will believe habitually-lying and crafty demons and they will follow what they teach.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “This which the Espiritu Santo is telling is really clear that, in the future time, some will drop/give-up their belief in the truth concerning Jesu-Cristo. What they will then follow/obey is, teaching which fools and leads astray, which has no other origin than the evil-ones/spirits.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “The Holy Spirit plainly tell us about the word, that when it is coming to the last day, there will live people who will separate from their faith. The false teachers whom the devil puts into their minds what they teach are the ones whom they will follow.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
