|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
21 Then he capped it with a damning indictment: Day after day after day, I beckoned Israel with open arms, And got nothing for my trouble but cold shoulders and icy stares.
21 But concerning Israel he says, "All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and obstinate people."
