  • Uma: “There is a proverb [lit., gold words] that says like this: "A little yeast make a lot of flour rise." And their teaching is like yeast.” (Source: Uma Back Translation)
  • Yakan: “The teaching which is not true is spreading as the proverb says, ‘Even a pinch of leaven (lit. cause-to-grow) can make the whole dough rise/grow.'” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “As for that false teaching that was taught to you, it’s like yeast when we make bread because even if you put just a little bit of it in a lot of flour, all of the bread will become yeasted just the same.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “Be-careful, because it’s true what people say, ‘Even a little yeast/baking-powder, it-causes-to-swell the entire mixture-it-is-mixed-in.'” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
  • Tagbanwa: “If you continue to go along with that teaching which is not the truth, your belief/obedience will perish. For is it not so that, even if only a little raising-agent is mixed in, it can-cause-to-rise the whole of what it was mixed into, as our proverb says.” (Source: Tagbanwa Back Translation)
  • Tenango Otomi: “You can see that a little bit of leaven leavens all the dough.” (Source: Tenango Otomi Back Translation)
