5 I am not sending you to some foreign people whose language you cannot understand. 5 You are not being sent to a people of obscure speech and difficult language, but to the house of Israel--
6 No, I am not sending you to people with strange and difficult speech. If I did, they would listen! 6 not to many peoples of obscure speech and difficult language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely if I had sent you to them, they would have listened to you.
