complete verse (1 Timothy 6:5)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Timothy 6:5:

  • Uma: “and mutually-taking-offense. The thinking of people like that is no longer proper, they don’t know the true teaching. They say [emphatic] they can get benefit/profit from their being-religious.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “These people always oppose/argue because their thinking no longer hits-the-mark and they no longer know the true teaching. They think mistakenly that if they are religious they will become rich.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “and mutual disturbance. This is the behavior of people whose minds have become malicious, and they will not obey the true doctrine. They think mistakenly that to surrender oneself to God is a way of making money.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “and continual quarrels, because their minds are already evil and they have gone-far-from the true teaching. They think that if they believe in God, they will thereby-become-rich.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “These people, they are always quarreling/challenging for evil has filled their mind/thinking. The truth is now really lost to them. They have the mistaken idea that their obeying/following God is a means-to-earn-money by which to get rich.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “There is no end to their arguments with people because their minds are evil. Concerning the true word they do not know it. They think that the word of faith is worth very much because they think that they will gain much money from it. But as for you, do not carry them along as friends.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
