complete verse (2 Corinthians 13:3)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Corinthians 13:3:

  • Uma: “Since some of you request that I show you a sign that Kristus has really sent-me-as-his-lips, just wait! When I arrive there, you will see the authority that the Kristus gave me. Kristus’ admonition that I deliver to you will not be weak, you will hear/feel his/its strength.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Because you want a sign that all I say to you is from Almasi’s command, you will know it when I punish you. Almasi is not weak but he is strong/powerful (incl.) whatever he does to you.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “At that time, you will be convinced that as for this I am saying to you, it’s what Christ told to me to say. And he is not a coward, but rather if there is anything that He does to you, he has great power which He will show you.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “You want me to confirm to you that Cristo is the one who is speaking through me, isn’t that so? I will show you then the truth of it when I go and punish the one(s) doing evil. Because Cristo is not weak to punish you but rather he will show his power.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “I will do like this so as to prove to you what you are looking for that, in this responsibility of mine, Cristo is the one who is causing me to speak. You will observe in me the strength of the supernatural-power of Cristo, for there is nothing lacking in his supernatural-power to punish the sinful.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Then you will know full well that it is Christ who strengthens me in the word I tell you. Because Christ is not one who speaks hesitatingly when he calls you rather he speaks strongly.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
