complete verse (2 Corinthians 7:14)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Corinthians 7:14:

  • Uma: “Before I ordered him to go [to you], I told him all about your goodness of heart, I made-big your name. It’s a good thing, relatives, that you didn’t embarrass me. Like all that I say to you, it’s all true, so also all that I told to Titus praising you, none of it was wrong, it was all true.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “I had praised you when Titus and I talked together at the time when he had not yet come to you. I am also happy because when he went there I was not ashamed of what I said because he saw that my praising you was really true/genuine. All that I said to you is true. And it is already seen that what I said to Titus is also true.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “I boasted about you to Titus and what I boasted about was true. Always what we say to you is true; in the same way also it was true what I said to Titus about you.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because previously we (excl.) boasted-about you to him, and (reassurance particle) I have not been-caused-shame because of what I said. Because here-now it has been confirmed that our (excl.) boasting-about you to him was true just the same as the truth of all that we (excl.) have been saying to you.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Before Tito left here, I was really praising you to him. And now, I am not ashamed about what I said for you have now fulfilled everything. Therefore just as everything we (excl.) tell you is true, it has become evident that all that of which I was boasting to Tito concerning you is also true.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “When Titus had not yet gone there, I told him that I surely knew that you would pay attention to the word I sent to you. And according to that word I told Titus is truly what you did. Thus is seen that it is true what I told Titus, just as when I was there where you are, all was true what I told you.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
