|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
4 Of course, your old friends don't understand why you don't join in with the old gang anymore. But you don't have to give an account to them.
4 They think it strange that you do not plunge with them into the same flood of dissipation, and they heap abuse on you.
