Following are a number of back-translations of 1 Corinthians 9:13:

  • Uma: “Don’t you know, relatives, the Yahudi religious custom: People who work in the House of God get their food from the House of God. The priests who burn the offerings of the people on the offering burning table, they get their share of those offerings.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “You know surely that the people working in the big prayer-house there in Awrusalam, all their expenses for food are given to them from the prayer-house. And the priests who offer/hand-over the animals that are sacrificed to God, they are given their share of the meat of the animal that is sacrificed.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “Certainly you know that those people who work in the church which is the house of God, they also get their food there. And the priests that offer sacrifices there, they also get their share of that which was offered.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “You know that those who serve in the Temple offering to God the animals that their companions bring, they have a share in what they offer.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “Do you not know that those who serve in the Templo of the Jews, they receive their food from the Templo? For it’s like this, the ones serving at the altar (lit. burning-place), they have a share in the sacrifices offered-in-worship on that altar.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “But you know very well concerning those people who work in the church where the Jews gather, that what things the people carry to the church are what they get to eat. These people I speak of are those who kill the animals for sacrifices at the altar, and are those who are given to eat the meat of what is sacrificed.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
