  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “We know that anything that can be seen that God created, this was made only by means of His word. And because of this, we can know that anything that is seen comes from that which cannot be seen.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because of our faith moreover, we understand that the world and all that exists was created by means of God’s command, thus what can-be-seen, it was not made from what can-be-seen.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For our believing in what God said is how- we -understood that, this world and all the created-things, they were created by just the power of his word.
