|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
3 If our Message is obscure to anyone, it's not because we're holding back in any way. No, it's because these other people are looking or going the wrong way and refuse to give it serious attention.
3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.
