|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
19 the law brought nothing to maturity. Another way - Jesus! - a way that does work, that brings us right into the presence of God, is put in its place.
19 (for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God.
