|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
20 Unless you do far better than the Pharisees in the matters of right living, you won't know the first thing about entering the kingdom.
20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.
