complete verse (2 Corinthians 12:10)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Corinthians 12:10:

  • Uma: “So, if I am weak, I am glad about it. I am glad if I am disparaged or persecuted, or encounter difficulties or suffering because of my following Kristus. For if I am weak, that is when I am strong.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “And that is the reason why I am pleased/content with whatever comes to me, whether my body is weak, or whether I am made ashamed, or whether I am in difficulties, or whether I am persecuted or if I am in troubles. All this I am able to endure because Isa Almasi is already my Leader. Because if I am weak the truth is that I am strong.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And my lack of wisdom, the way people speak in rejection against me, and so harmful things to me, and the difficulties and the hardships because of my faith in Christ, these cause me happiness because I know that when I don’t have any wisdom, that the wisdom which Christ gives me is very big.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Therefore when I experience my weakness, other hardships or frightful happenings because of Cristo, I am content. I am also content if someone shames-me or hardships-me because of Cristo. Because when I feel my weakness, I am also strong because of his-strengthening me.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Yes indeed, I certainly am happy-about-it if I am weak, belittled/insulted, severely-hardshipped, caused-difficulty, or (if) I am in dire circumstances because of my serving Cristo. For whenever I am weak or have no ability of my own, I suddenly/unexpectedly become-strong/healthy again because of the strength and ability that Cristo freely-gives me.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “So then I rejoice when I suffer pain. There are times when I am insulted, there are times when I don’t have what I need to eat, there are times when people are against me, there are times when I suffer for the work I do for Christ, yet I rejoice. When it is seen that I am not strong, then it is clearly seen that it is Christ who strengthens me in what I do.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
