|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
16 Keep a firm grasp on both your character and your teaching. Don't be diverted. Just keep at it. Both you and those who hear you will experience salvation.
16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
