|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
5 They conveniently forget that long ago all the galaxies and this very planet were brought into existence out of watery chaos by God's word.
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.
