|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
6 If I had sent you to such people, their ears would have perked up and they would have listened immediately.
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.
