complete verse (1 Corinthians 5:8)

Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 5:8:

  • Uma: “So, come let us throw-out the old yeast, we throw-out our former behavior, like a dark heart and evil behavior. Let us worship God with our whole hearts [lit., with clean-clean hearts].” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “Therefore because we (dual) trust in Isa Almasi, we (dual) should leave our (dual) bad customs and our (dual) sinful doings. And our (incl.) customs should be really good and we (dual) should wholeheartedly follow the true teaching.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “And because of this, we also have our own celebration of the Feast of the Passover, and it’s necessary that we no longer use that old bread which has yeast, which is the evil and filthy activity, but rather the bread that we now use is bread without yeast, which is to say, the obeying of the true doctrine and telling the truth.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Therefore in our participating-in-the-fiesta, let us not eat bread that has yeast. What I mean to say is, in our lives as believers, let us not follow bad behavior but rather what is good and true in which is mixed absolutely no evil.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Therefore let us also include-ourselves in the fulfillment of this fiesta. What the Jews did in the past was, (they) removed from their houses all raising-agent for bread, that being like a picture of sin in their lives. Well just like that, let us also remove from our lives all evil and disgusting deeds. And this is what would be good for us to make-a-habit-of, concentrating our whole mind/inner-being on obeying the truth which comes from God.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “Therefore it is necessary that truly you separate from evil, walk in all that is good.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
