|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It's our handle on what we can't see.
1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
