|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
38 But Paul wouldn't have him; he wasn't about to take along a quitter who, as soon as the going got tough, had jumped ship on them in Pamphylia.
38 but Paul did not think it wise to take him, because he had deserted them in Pamphylia and had not continued with them in the work.
