Every time you drink [it], do this to remember me.'” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Likewise also when they had finished eating, he took the glass and said, ‘This drink is a sign of God’s new covenant to you.

He said, ‘As for the contents of this cup, it is the strength/pledge of God’s new initiated-agreement with people, this strength/pledge being none other than my own blood that I will shed. Every time you drink this, always do it like this as your remembrance also of me.'” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
