God is love

The Greek that is translated as “God is love” in most English versions is translated in Arrernte as “God always shows his love to people.” (Source: Carl Gross)

In Mairasi, this is translated as “Above-One Himself (=God) is ‘The Person Who Desires People’s Faces (=Love)’.” (Source: Enggavoter 2004)
