complete verse (2 Corinthians 10:7)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Corinthians 10:7:

  • Uma: “Recognize/Discern what you see! If there are those there who say that they are Kristus’s portion, they should make their hearts clear, so that they will know that we (excl.) as well are Kristus’ portion the same as they are.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “You, that is only what you look at, at the outside of a person not what is in his liver. There are people there with you who say that they only are the servants of Almasi, they say. Na, they should think that we (excl.) are also servants of Almasi like they are.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Carefully think about that you already understand, because there are some of you who suppose mistakenly that they alone are the true servants of Christ. It’s necessary that they understand that as for us, we are also true servants of Christ.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Your failing is that you respect the status of people based on what you can-see. Because there are those there who say that they are the proper representatives of Cristo, but if they say that, they ought to remember that we (excl.) also are Cristo’s proper representatives.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Your mistake/sin is, all you look at always is the outward circumstances of a person. This is the truth, if anyone is sure that Cristo is the one who appointed him, it would be good if he thinks this through well so that he will comprehend that, as for us (excl.), it is also like that that Cristo really is the one who appointed us (excl.) as his servants.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Why is it that you only see the person’s body and you do not know what word is in the person’s heart? Concerning the people who are against me, they say they are workers for Christ, but they should know about the word that I myself also am Christ’s worker.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
