  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Don’t forget your masters who at an earlier time taught you the word of God. Just consider the good which has come about by means of their behavior, and like them, you hold tight to your faith in Jesus Christ.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)

  • Tagbanwa: “What is good also is, consider the first ones who had-oversight-over you, the full-time-relaters to you of the word of God in the past. Think about (lit. walk your minds on) the good which was achieved by their lives and hopefully you will copy the good-quality of their believing/obeying.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Remember how they walked, those preachers who told you the word of God. Note the good they did while they lived, and do the same. Their faith was firm, do the same yourselves, have your faith firm.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
