They oppose/are against each other and fight/quarrel. They are jealous and angry. That is what they always think about only what they want, they do not think of their companions. They form-different-groups. (magpa’il-pa’il)” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “worshipping that which is not proper to worship, and using the power which Satan gives.
