|New Century Version (NCV)
||New International Version (NIV)
21 But he does not let the teaching go deep into his life, so he keeps it only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the teaching he accepted, he quickly gives up.
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.
