  • Yakan: “You surprise, you circumcise your children even on a day of-no-work in order not to break the law of Musa, na why are you angry at me because I have made a person well on the day of-no-work?” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And if it is possible that the body of a person may be circumcized on the day of rest so that the law given to us by Moses is not broken, why are you angry with me just because I cured the whole body of a man on the Day of Rest?” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “If that’s what you do on the day for-resting so that Moses’ command concerning only-one part of the body will be obeyed/fulfilled, why perhaps do you stay-angry at me if I healed a man on the day for-resting so that the sickness of his entire body would be thoroughly removed?” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
