complete verse (2 Corinthians 6:2)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Corinthians 6:2:

  • Uma: “In the Holy Book long ago God said like this: ‘At the time I set I heard your (s) cry, I helped you(s), I lifted you(s) from the punishment of your (s) sins.’ Relatives, I say to you, this is the time that God set. I say to you, on this day God wants to lift you from the punishment of your sins.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Listen to what God says, ‘When the day came that I had prearranged/set I heard you (singular). When the day came for my saving you (singular), I helped you (singular).’ Therefore I say to you: Listen! This day is the day that God has set to show his love. This day is the day when he saves you from the judgment of your sin.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “For there is a written word of God which says, ‘At the time when I wanted, I listened to your prayers; and at the proper time for my setting mankind free, I helped you.’ Now what I say to you is, this is already the time when God wants to help you. This is already the time for Him to free you from punishment.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because there is that which God caused-to-be-written which says, ‘I heard your (singular) prayer at the time when I decided to show-mercy to you (singular), and I helped you (singular) on the arrival of the right day that I would save you (singular).’ Remember this then. Now is the right time for you to receive God’s grace/mercy. Today is the right day for you to be saved.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For consider what God said in what was written in the past which says, ‘At the time which I determined as correct I responded to your prayers. I answered you on the day which I established as the day of salvation.'” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Because concerning God, in the word written in the Holy Book he says: ‘There will come the day which I have determined to give you grace. When you call on me I will listen to what you say to me. It is the day when your soul can be saved and I will help you’ says God. And now is the day for you to call on God. It is the day for you to save your souls.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
