complete verse (John 14:11)

Following are a number of back-translations of John 14:11:

  • Ojitlán Chinantec: “Believe my words. I and my Father are the same. Or if you still don’t believe just because I said so, believe because you have seen the works that I have done.”
  • Huehuetla Tepehua: “Believe that I and my Father are one thing. Or if you can’t believe just by my words, believe by means of what I have done.”
  • Lalana Chinantec: “You must believe that I walk with my Father. My Father walks with me also. But if you do not believe that, there is something which makes it evident. You have seen the miracles which I have done; therefore, on account of them you must believe.”
