|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 Where do you think all these appalling wars and quarrels come from? Do you think they just happen? Think again. They come about because you want your own way, and fight for it deep inside yourselves.
1 What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you?
