complete verse (Galatians 5:21)

Following are a number of back-translations of Galatians 5:21:

  • Uma: “are-envious, get-drunk all the time, continually party, and there are also many other things. I warned you from the start the other day [lit., yesterday], and I warn you again now: anyone who behaves like that will not get a portion in the Kingdom of God.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “They covet the belongings of their companions. They are drunks and when they gather together to enjoy themselves they always drink-and-drink and do foolish (immoral) things. There are yet other deeds of theirs like these. Let me repeat what I have said to you before/formerly, that the people who do these evil deeds really are really not included in God’s ruling.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “they desire to get the possessions of their companions, they get drunk, they do not restrain the evil desires but rather they obey them. There are many other things which they do which are like this. I will again say what I said before, that the person who does things like this, he cannot be included in those God will rule over in the future.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “they are greedy (lit. grasp for what isn’t theirs), they are drunkards, they join-in-with excessive partying (lit. happinesses), and they do other-things like these. I warned you previously and I warn you again (lit. repeat to warn) now: those who do-things like those, they will not join/be-added-to God’s ruling.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “envy, parties resulting in extreme drunkenness, and other kinds of evil behavior like this. My warning to you is, just like my warning in the past, the ones doing things like these really can not be included in the kingdom of God.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “One wants the possessions of his fellowman, one kills, one gets drunk, and doesn’t stop long enough to get sober. And all the other evils there are what that one does. I have already told you before and again I tell you, that the people who do thus will not enter into where God rules.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
