  • Yakan: “We (incl.) all have been made one figuratively like the body of Almasi. His body is only one. God’s Spirit also is only one. Likewise there is only one (thing) that we (incl.) all expect/hope for because we (incl.) have been equally chosen by God.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “For as for us (incl.), all believers, we are only one body. And there’s only one Holy Spirit who guides us; and there’s only one immortality that we are expecting because we have been made believers.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)

  • Tagbanwa: “Because we, (we are) just like one body-entity, and the Espiritu Santo who indwells our body is one-only. Like that too, the good (situation) that we are hoping-for/expecting in the future is one-only, we whom God inspired (lit. put it in our minds) to submit to him.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “All we believers are like we are one person in how God sees us. And it is the one Holy Spirit we walk with. Concerning the word we await to happen, it is one word which God calls us with.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
