|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
8 On the other hand, perhaps it is new, freshly minted as it is in both Christ and you - the darkness on its way out and the True Light already blazing!
8 Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining.
