|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
8 Anyone who neglects to care for family members in need repudiates the faith. That's worse than refusing to believe in the first place.
8 If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
