|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
20 Everyone who makes a practice of doing evil, addicted to denial and illusion, hates God-light and won't come near it, fearing a painful exposure.
20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
