complete verse (2 Corinthians 4:10)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Corinthians 4:10:

  • Uma: “Wherever we (excl.) journey [lit., Wherever our (excl.) journey], we (excl.) face death all the time the same as the Lord Yesus. This happens so that the power of the life of Yesus in our (excl.) lives becomes clear to all people. [Note: the phrase ‘face death’ is understandable in Uma although not completely natural. It is grammatically similar to and perhaps a borrowing from the Indonesian ‘menghadap kematian.’]” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “We (excl.) always feel in our bodies the things that Isa experienced, including that we (excl.) almost die like he died. But we (excl.) are helped by Isa Almasi so that when people see us (excl.) they will know that Isa truly lives.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Just like Jesus long ago, we are hated by everybody and they want to kill us. The reason all of these things happen is so that it might be known by means of us, that Jesus is alive again, for He always is helping us.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “No matter where we (excl.) go, we (excl.) continually face death like Jesus (did) because of our (excl.) being-joined to him in order that the life that he gives will be seen in our (excl.) bodies that die.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Really wherever we (excl.) go our bodies are always being caused suffering, in that it’s like we (excl.) are always facing certain death (lit. looking down into a dug-pit), just like Jesus when he was still here in the world. But because we (excl.) are all the more able to face/attend-to our (excl.) responsibility even though our (excl.) bodies are experiencing like this, it really is evident that this Jesus has been made alive again, for the help of his supernatural-power is with us.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Wherever I arrive, I give myself up to be killed like Christ did who was killed. Therefore from this, people will know that Jesus is the one who lives to help me.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
