|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
15 A contract drawn up by a hard-nosed lawyer and with plenty of fine print only makes sure that you will never be able to collect. But if there is no contract in the first place, simply a promise - and God's promise at that - you can't break it.
15 because law brings wrath. And where there is no law there is no transgression.
