The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 Listen, Heavens, I have something to tell you. Attention, Earth, I've got a mouth full of words. 1 Listen, O heavens, and I will speak; hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.
2 My teaching, let it fall like a gentle rain, my words arrive like morning dew, Like a sprinkling rain on new grass, like spring showers on the garden. 2 Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
3 For it's God's Name I'm preaching - respond to the greatness of our God! 3 I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Oh, praise the greatness of our God!
4 The Rock: His works are perfect, and the way he works is fair and just; A God you can depend upon, no exceptions, a straight-arrow God. 4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.
5 His messed-up, mixed-up children, his non-children, throw mud at him but none of it sticks. 5 They have acted corruptly toward him; to their shame they are no longer his children, but a warped and crooked generation.
6 Don't you realize it is God you are treating like this? This is crazy; don't you have any sense of reverence? Isn't this your father who created you, who made you and gave you a place on Earth? 6 Is this the way you repay the LORD, O foolish and unwise people? Is he not your Father, your Creator, who made you and formed you?
