  • Yakan: “This is what the holy-book says, ‘When/if you hear God’s voice this day, don’t cause your livers to be hard as your ancestors of old who really did not want to follow/obey God.'” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “For it’s like the word of God which I have already written which says, ‘Today if you will hear the words of God to you, it’s necessary that your breath not become hard like your breath was long time ago when you resisted God.'” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)

  • Tenango Otomi: “It is written in the Holy Book the word which says: ‘Concerning this day, listen to the word God speaks to you. Do not reject the word God speaks now. Do not do like the old-time people did in the desert when they rejected what God said,’ it says.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
