complete verse (1 Timothy 5:10)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Timothy 5:10:

  • Uma: “They must be ones who clearly do good deeds, like for instance: they took good care of their children, are hospitable to passers-by, help their one-faith relatives, care for people in difficulties, and customarily do all kinds of good work. Widows like that are the ones who are fit to be cared for by the one-faith relatives.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Their good deeds ought also to be well-known, that is they raised their children well, they treat-according-to-good-custom the people who go to their house, their livers are low/humble they do even whatever for the ones belonging to God, they help the ones who are in troubles/sorrows and whatever is a good deed they do. Widows like that can be listed.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “It’s also necessary that she be well known because of her good works such as taking care of children, taking care of visitors; she has washed the feet of believers, she has helped those in trouble, and she has done all kinds of good things.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “It is also necessary that the good things they have been doing like these are well-known (lit. being-reported): they have taken-care of their children properly, they are hospitable, they have humbled (lit. lowered) themselves to serve God’s people, they have been helping people in trouble/hardship, and they have been industrious to do whatever is good.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “It is also necessary that her nature/ways are well-known to be good, like she trained her children well, welcomes people well who need to stay at her house. There’s no service to her fellow believers that she says no to. She helps those who are in hardship. And all this time, what she gives priority to is, all deeds which are good.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “They must be women who are known to do what is good, who have brought up their children well, who have given a resting place to strangers. And they must be known to be those who are not proud, and have respect for their fellow believers. They help those who suffer. They must always want to do only what is good.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
