|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 This is the way God put it: "They found grace out in the desert, these people who survived the killing. Israel, out looking for a place to rest,
2 This is what the LORD says: "The people who survive the sword will find favor in the desert; I will come to give rest to Israel."
