  • Kankanaey: “‘But now however,’ said Jesus, ‘the one who has money and backpack, he may-as-well (lit. never-mind-if he) take-it-along, and the one who has no sword, he must go buy, even if it is necessary for him to sell his outer garment so that he will have something-to-pay-with.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “‘But today/now,’ said Jesus, ‘it’s good if you go prepared. If you have money or something to put into, take them along. The one who has no bolo and nothing to buy one with, it would be good if he sell his cloak to buy his bolo.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
