|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
16 marry your sons to their women, women who take up with any convenient god or goddess and will get your sons to do the same thing.
16 And when you choose some of their daughters as wives for your sons and those daughters prostitute themselves to their gods, they will lead your sons to do the same.
