|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
25 You were lost sheep with no idea who you were or where you were going. Now you're named and kept for good by the Shepherd of your souls.
25 For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
