|GOD'S WORD Translation (GW)
||New International Version (NIV)
21 It would have been better for them never to have known the way of life that God approves of than to know it and turn their backs on the holy life God told them to live.
21 It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them.
