|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
16 God himself scattered them. No longer does he look out for them. He has nothing to do with the priests; he cares nothing for the elders.
16 The LORD himself has scattered them; he no longer watches over them. The priests are shown no honor, the elders no favor.
