  • Yakan: “Look at the custom of the tribe of Isra’il. The ones who eat the food given to God are also included/together in worshiping God. If it is like that, that means that the people who eat what was given to the idols are also included/together in worshiping those idols.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)

  • Kankanaey: “Think-about the descendants of Israel. When they join-in-eating what has been offered to God, they show that they are joining in worshipping him, isn’t that so?” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Remember also the Israelita of the past, the Israelita according to blood, not according to believing/obeying. Was it not so that when they would eat what was being sacrificed as a thank-offering on the altar(lit.burning-place), they were going-along-with the worshipping of God who was the one being thanked?” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “You see what the Jews do when they make a sacrifice to God. All who eat the meat which is killed to offer to God share together because their hearts are together in the worship they do.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
