complete verse (1 Corinthians 11:27)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 11:27:

  • Uma: “That’s why I say to you: people who eat the bread and drink the wine of the Lord’s with behavior that is not fitting, they are wrong, for it is like they have not paid-attention-to/valued the Lord’s body and blood that this custom stands-for/is-the-meaning-of.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Therefore whoever eats the bread and drinks from the glass for remembering Isa Almasi but his conduct is not fitting, na, that person sins because he does not respect the body of Almasi and his blood.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And if someone eats this bread of the Lord and drinks this drink of His, and he does not place in his breath what is the true meaning of this, he has sinned against our Lord because he had not respected the body and the blood of our Lord.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “That is the reason that if someone joins in eating-together from the bread and drinking-together from what is in the cup and he doesn’t think-of/remember its proper use, he sins against the Lord because he despises/looks-down-on his body and his blood.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Therefore whoever copies the not good ways of some there when eating and drinking this remembrance, it really is not fitting for the far-from-ordinary significance of it. If they do like that, the judgment on them really will be like the judgment passed on those who killed the Lord.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “And now, whoever does not respect the Holy Supper when he eats it is committing sin. Because he is not respecting the Lord whose blood flowed out when he died for the people.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
