|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 Better to wear a millstone necklace and take a swim in the deep blue sea than give even one of these dear little ones a hard time!
2 It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.
