  • Kankanaey: “That is the evidence of God’s absolutely correct/right judging of people, because your enduring of hardship since you are God’s people, it is happening to you in order that God will give-the-verdict that you are worthy to be-joined-to his ruling.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
