|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 The day is coming when the world is going to stand before a jury made up of Christians. If someday you are going to rule on the world's fate, wouldn't it be a good idea to practice on some of these smaller cases?
2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases?
