|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
7 Doom to the world for giving these God-believing children a hard time! Hard times are inevitable, but you don't have to make it worse - and it's doomsday to you if you do.
7 "Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the man through whom they come!
