|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 You planted them and they put down roots. They flourished and produced fruit. They talk as if they're old friends with you, but they couldn't care less about you.
2 You have planted them, and they have taken root; they grow and bear fruit. You are always on their lips but far from their hearts.
