|American Standard Version (ASV)
||New International Version (NIV)
5 For this they willfully forget, that there were heavens from of old, and an earth compacted out of water and amidst water, by the word of God;
5 But they deliberately forget that long ago by God's word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water.
