complete verse (Galatians 5:19)

Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 5:19:

  • Uma: “The deeds that we do if we follow the evil desires of our hearts are quite evident/recognizable. For instance: we commit adultery or behave wrongly with a woman or man, or we do other unseemly actions like that,” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “If their greedy-desire is what people follow, it is easily known because this is their doings: they commit adultery/fornication, they are immoral and they are not ashamed to do folly (sexual things implied).” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “We can identify the evil behavior which is made possible by the evil desires of the body because it’s fooling around with someone who is not our spouse, filthy and ugly behavior,” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “It is easy to distinguish what people do that comes-from their human minds. It is these: they sleep-with those who are not their spouses and they do what is filthy and indecent;” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For those things which are the outcome of our congenital evil desires are clear to us all. Because it’s these things, all kinds of immoral behaviour with one who is not your spouse, disgusting habits/ways or thoughts and the indulging of disgusting desires with no self control at all.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “It isn’t hard for us to know what is the evil done by people. It is adultery, a heart full of evil, one doesn’t want to control himself concerning walking in evil.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
