|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
16 People sitting out their lives in the dark saw a huge light; Sitting in that dark, dark country of death, they watched the sun come up.
16 the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned."
