God is love

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)
