  • Uma: “Finally, relatives, be glad. Make-clear your following the Lord, make-strong your hearts with my admonitions, be one-heart and live in harmony. And God will be with you: he will show you his love and give you goodness of life [peace].” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Na, my brothers, up to here only. Aspire to making your conduct good; really follow my instructions to you; live in harmony so that you will have peace. Then God is there with you, he is the source of love and peace.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Brothers, these are the only things I have to say to you; may you be joyful; correct your behavior; carry out my advice to you. It’s necessary that your breaths become one and your living become peaceful; because if you do this, as for God who’s the origin of kindness and peace, He will always be with you.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “There is still a little that I want to say to you my brothers in this conclusion of my letter. Take-careful-heed-to your behavior so that you will be godly. Don’t turn-a-deaf-ear-to what I have been telling you. Make-one your minds and get-along-together because if you do that, God who is the source of love and peace will be with you.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Well, maybe this is now enough that I will write. My siblings in believing, cause your mind/inner-being to be happy. Hopefully you will now fix up your following/obeying of God. Receive what I am saying well. Be-in-harmony and live so as to make your fellowship peaceful. If you strive to do all these things, you will observe that God is with you always, he who is the source of valuing and holding dear and peace of mind/inner-being.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “And now my brothers, may God help you. Hunt for how to walk good. May God put peace in your hearts. And love each other. If there happens to be a disagreement, make peace. If you do this, then you will be doing what God wants and God then will never separate from you.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
