complete verse (2 Corinthians 9:10)

Following are a number of back-translations of 2 Corinthians 9:10:

  • Uma: “God gives seeds to the sower [lit., scattering-stuff to the scatterer], and he gives us the fruit of our farming as our food. So also God will bless the gift you will give to others, so that so that your goodness of heart will have much fruit.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “God is the one who gives the seed to the farmer and the ones who gives food so that mankind has (something) to eat. God also is the one who gives you all that you-use-to help your companions. This is figuratively like seed and God causes the outcome of your good deeds to increase and to multiply. This is figuratively like a good harvest.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And as for God, He’s the one who gives seed to the sower so that there might be food. What we give to others is like seed. He gives us also seed, which is to say, that which we can use to help other people, so that there might be a big harvest which comes from our righteous deeds to others.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because God who gives seed to the planter and people’s food, he is the very-one who gives and causes-to-be-much what you have in order that the good you are doing in giving will also be added-to.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For just as God gives seed to plant, and causes it to grow (lit. strengthens it) so that it becomes what-can-be-eaten, just like that too, he causes-us -to-have-a-plentiful-supply of that-which-we -can-give to others who are needy. And it’s like God causes-to-grow (lit. strengthens) this that we are like planting which is what we help others with, so that there will be good results from this grace/mercy of ours to our fellowman.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “It is God who gives seed to be planted, so that there will be food for people to eat. He also will give you all that you need. There will be much so that you can do good to other people.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
