|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
9 So let them have their own way. But warn them of what they're in for. Tell them the way kings operate, just what they're likely to get from a king."
9 Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do."
