The Greek that is translated as “God is love” in most English versions is translated as “God loves mankind” in Yatzachi Zapotec and “God has the character of a lover (or God’s character is to habitually love)” in Tzotzil. (Source: John Beekham in Notes on Translation November 1964, p. 1-22.)
In Arrernte it is translated as “God always shows his love to people.” (Source: Carl Gross)
See also love (by God).
