|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
3 They threw dice for my people and used them for barter. They would trade a boy for a whore, sell a girl for a bottle of wine when they wanted a drink.
3 They cast lots for my people and traded boys for prostitutes; they sold girls for wine that they might drink.
