Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 11:29:

  • Uma: “For people who eat the bread and drink the wine with behavior that is not fitting will be punished by God, for they are not paying-attention-to/valuing the Lord’s body which that custom stands-for/is-the-meaning-of.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Because if a person eats the bread and drinks the drink and does not think of/regard Almasi’s body, as to what it means, he causes judgment to come on himself because of his eating and drinking.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Because if he does not consider that that drink and that food is a symbol of the body and blood of Jesus, then God will punish him.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Because if he eats-together and drinks-together (with others) while at-the-same-time he doesn’t understand the meaning and value of Cristo’s body, he will be punished because of his doing so.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Because whoever eats and drinks not paying attention to his companions as being all-one-body-entity, judgment which is punishment by God is what he is asking for by it.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
