|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
16 I'm only pointing out the obvious. A servant is not ranked above his master; an employee doesn't give orders to the employer.
16 I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.
