|American Standard Version (ASV)
||New International Version (NIV)
21 yet hath he not root in himself, but endureth for a while; and when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, straightway he stumbleth.
21 But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away.
