But God has already long ago prepared their punishment, and he will no longer put off the day of their punishment.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “These teachers who are not true ones crave for money therefore they will make a profit of you with their stories which are not true. They have been sentenced already beforehand. God does not sleep, he will certainly punish them.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)

  • Kankanaey: “Because of their grasping-after money, these who teach what isn’t true will trick you by relating-tales that will-come-from their own minds only, and they will use you as a means-of-their -making-a-profit.

  • Tagbanwa: “Well, since those teachers are really greedy, through that fabricated talk of theirs which is wholly lies, they will just make of you a means-of-income. But the truth is, from long ago a heavy/severe judgment which had been sentenced was already being held in store. There’s really no doubt about their being reached by punishment.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
