|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 God told me, "Go and buy yourself some linen shorts. Put them on and keep them on. Don't even take them off to wash them."
1 This is what the LORD said to me: "Go and buy a linen belt and put it around your waist, but do not let it touch water."
