The Greek that is translated as “humble” or “humble mind” in many English versions is translated into Eastern Arrernte as the appropriate and correct behavior in kinship relationships.
See also humble / lowly.
The Greek that is typically translated as “spirit” in English is translated in Warao as “obojona.” Obojona is a term that “includes the concepts of consciousness, will, attitude, attention and a few other miscellaneous notions.” (Source: Henry Osborn in The Bible Translator 1969, p. 74ff.)
See other occurrences of Obojona in the Warao New Testament.
