|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
12 Even if they did give birth, I'd declare them unfit parents and take away their children! Yes indeed - a black day for them when I turn my back and walk off!
12 Even if they rear children, I will bereave them of every one. Woe to them when I turn away from them!
