|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
7 Focusing on the self is the opposite of focusing on God. Anyone completely absorbed in self ignores God, ends up thinking more about self than God. That person ignores who God is and what he is doing.
7 the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so.
