Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 10:27:

  • Uma: “If any of you are called by a friend who is not a Kristen person to go eat at their house, and you want to go, eat what they offer you. You don’t have to ask first whether it is meat that was offered to idols or not.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “For example, there is a person who does not trust in Isa Almasi who invites you to eat and you want to go, you can eat whatever he places before you. But don’t ask (keep asking) if it has been given to the idols in order that you will eat without hindrance.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “If there is someone who has not believed in our Lord, and he asks you to eat in his house and you go, it’s allowable for you to eat what he sets before you. However, you must not ask if it has been sacrificed or not, so that you will not feel guilty if it has been sacrificed.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “If moreover there is someone who does not believe who invites you (singular) to eat and you (singular) want to go eat-with (him), eat your (singular) fill (lit. eat properly), whatever they set-before (you) without asking whether it was offered to idols.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “If you are invited to go and eat at the house of a person who is not a believer, and you want to attend, eat whatever is set before you. Don’t bother your mind/inner-being or ask if it was used in worshipping a pretend god or not.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “If a person who is not a believer invites you to a meal and you decide to go, then eat whatever is given to you. Do not first ask whether the meat has been sacrificed or not. Do not be afraid to eat it.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
