The Greek that is translated with “moved with compassion (or: pity)” in English is translated as “to see someone with sorrow” in Piro, “to suffer with someone” in Huastec, or “one’s mind to be as it were out of one” in Balinese. (source: Bratcher / Nida)

The term “compassion” is translated as “cries in the soul” in Shilluk (source: Nida, 1952, p. 132) or “has a good stomach” (=”sympathetic”) in Aari (source: Loren Bliese).
