|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
16 They say they know God, but their actions speak louder than their words. They're real creeps, disobedient good-for-nothings.
16 They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.
