Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 11:34:

  • Uma: “If someone is hungry, he should eat beforehand at his house. Don’t gather to have a service, yet end up getting punishment from the Lord instead. And as for the other matters, I’ll just arrange them when I arrive.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “If someone of you is hungry, he should eat ahead in his house, then when you gather you will not be hit by God’s judgment. I still have some teaching for you, but I will wait until I come to you.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “If there’s someone who is hungry, it’s necessary that he satisfies his hunger in his own house so that the Lord might not punish you when you disobey what he commanded about your gathering together. Here are some other words of advice I have for you, but I will wait until I arrive there to tell you about them.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “If also someone is hungry, he should eat first at his home so that when you congregate-together, it doesn’t lead to your punishment. Concerning also the other-things I want to command/instruct you, let’s-wait until I go there (near addressee).” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “And as for those feasts where much is eaten, it’s good if you just do it in your own homes, not combining it with doing the remembrance of the Lord’s death, so that it won’t be the judgment of punishment which will be what comes of this gathering together of yours. Well, concerning the other matters, I will just fix them up when I arrive there.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “But if there is someone who is very hungry, he should eat first before he leaves his home in order that he will not commit sin there where you gather. Then he will not be punished. Now, if there are other matters bothering you, I will talk to you about them when I have come to be with you.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
