complete verse (1 Corinthians 10:16)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 10:16:

  • Uma: “When we drink wine to remember the blood of Kristus that was poured-out on the cross, we say thank you to the Lord God, and we drink it together. Isn’t that a sign that we are Kristus’s people, whom he redeemed with his death? And when we distribute the bread and eat it together to remember Kristus dying on the cross, isn’t that a sign that we are portions of the body of Kristus?” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “When we (incl.) gather to remember the death of Isa Almasi we (incl.) drink from the glass, the one we (dual) have given thanks for to God as a sign that we (dual) are one already with Almasi because of his blood that was spilled. Likewise the bread that is broken. We (dual) eat that bread as a sign that we (dual) belong now to Almasi.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “As for us (incl.) believers, when we gather together in order to carry out the remembering the death of Christ, there is that which we drink which we give thanks for to God. This is a symbol that we have been cleansed by the blood of Christ (the word cleansed here, is a word referring to what any kind of a sacrificial sacrifice does, that is, what the blood of sacrificial offering does, and it, in Manobo culture, removes evil). And the bread which we break and we eat, this is our sharing in the body of Christ.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “When we join-in-taking-communion (makikumulgar), when/if we drink from what is in the glass for-which-we -give-thanks to God and we also eat from the bread that has been broken-into-pieces, we join-in-experiencing/sharing the blessing that comes-from the blood and body of Cristo, isn’t that so?” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “For is it not so that when we give thanks to God for what we drink when we eat-the-communion-meal(glossary item), what it means is that we are one mind/inner-being-entity joining-in-fellowship with Cristo, for we have a share in the good which will be ours because of his blood which was shed? And also when we eat the bread which is broken-up, like that too, we are one mind/inner-being-entity joining-in-fellowship with Cristo for we have a share in the good which will be ours because of his body which was sacrificed.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “When we ask God to bless the cup when we have the Holy Supper, does it not signify that those people who drink it are the people for whom Christ’s blood flowed there on the cross in order to save them? And concerning the bread which we break in order to eat, does it not signify that all who eat it are the people for whom Christ gave up his body there where he was killed to save them.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
