complete verse (2 Corinthians 11:4)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Corinthians 11:4:

  • Uma: “People arrive there teaching you to follow Yesus, but their teaching isn’t the same as what we (excl.) taught you. But even so, you are actually patient listening to their teaching! You are actually glad to receive a spirit that is different from the Holy Spirit that you have already received! You are actually glad to receive news that is different than the Good News that you have already believed!” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Because if someone comes and preaches to you, you are still happy even if their preaching about Isa is different from our (excl.) preaching; and you receive (something) which is not the Holy Spirit, and their teaching is not the good news that we (excl.) taught you.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “The reason I am worried about you is because if someone comes there to you and they teach something different about Jesus, and it’s a different spirit that they teach about, and what they teach is not the true doctrine which we taught to you but rather what they teach is different, then you just allow their teaching and that’s not all, because you very much like to listen to it.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because if there are those who arrive who are preaching something different about Jesus, you definitely don’t turn-a-deaf-ear-to them. You also easily receive a spirit (RL ispirito) who is different from the Holy Spirit whom you originally received. And you also easily believe news that they say is good but it is different from the good news that we (excl.) preached to you. Oh you (expression of rebuke)! Why do you put-up-with them?” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Because you accept the teaching of anybody who arrives, even if what they teach concerning Jesus is different from what we (excl.) taught you. You are acknowledging it as true even if the Espiritu that they teach you about is different from the Espiritu Santo, and even if they are replacing the Good News we taught you.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Because concerning whoever arrives with a different teaching, not the same as what I taught you about Christ, that is the one you pay attention to. It is different what they teach you about the Holy Spirit, it is different what they teach you about the good news, it isn’t the same as the word I have already taught you.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
