  • Tenango Otomi: “When people say that it is true what they are saying, they call upon God to be their witness. When a person has called on God to be his witness, then his friend with whom he is talking cannot say that it is not true in what he said. But God promised a word to Abraham and since no one is greater than God, therefore he used his own name, telling Abraham it is God’s own word that which was said. He said to him: ‘It is true what I say to you, overflowingly I will bless you. I will cause that very much will increase your children,’ he said. But Abraham did not get anxious concerning the word God spoke. Rather he waited, waited until there came the day when it happened according to the word God promised would happen.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
