|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
3 "So now I'm telling you that I won't drive them out before you. They'll trip you up and their gods will become a trap."
3 Now therefore I tell you that I will not drive them out before you; they will be [thorns] in your sides and their gods will be a snare to you."
