|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 "Up on your feet! Take a deep breath! Maybe there's life in you yet. But I wouldn't know it by looking at your busywork; nothing of God's work has been completed. Your condition is desperate.
2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God.
