|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
16 He stuck up for the down-and-out, And things went well for Judah. Isn't this what it means to know me?" God's Decree!
16 He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well. Is that not what it means to know me?" declares the LORD.
