|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
21 Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
21 If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
