complete verse (2 Corinthians 11:9)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Corinthians 11:9:

  • Uma: “Once I had a lack at that time, but I didn’t make-a-request of you. For relatives from the land of Makedonia arrived bringing money that made-up my lack. I carefully guarded/watched-out that I not make-requests-of you at that time, so as to not make-it-hard-on you. And that’s what I will keep on doing, I won’t make-requests-of you.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “When I was there with you, when I had a need, I did not ask from you because my need was helped by our (incl.) brothers from Makedoniya. From formerly until the future I really will not ask anything from you.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And when I was there with you, if I needed some money I did not ask for anything from you, for our (incl.) brethren who came from the province of Macedonia, they gave me everything that I needed. As for you Greeks, I have never asked my livelihood from you and it also cannot be that I will ever ask anything from you.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because when I lacked what I needed, I didn’t request from you, for there were brothers of ours who came-from Macedonia bringing what I needed. So I have never hardshipped you and likewise also (it will be) in future days.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Well, as-you-well-remember when I had lack there I didn’t bother anybody at all (with the problem), for some siblings in faith from Macedonia who had arrived helped me. Really right up to the present I am being very careful that I don’t become a bother/nuisance to you in anything. Hopefully I will indeed be able to continue to do like this.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “When I was living there where you live there were times when I didn’t have anything to eat, yet I didn’t ask you for what I needed. It was those brothers who arrived from the land of Macedonia who gave me what I needed. Thus I did not ask you for what I needed, I never will ask you for what I need.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
