I use Biblegateway.com a lot. Among other things, I make it a habit to check the verse of the day, comparing it in several versions. Today it is Psalm 19:1-2, one of my favorite verses, and for some unknown reason I checked it in the Message. Here it is in the NKJV and the NIV, then the Message. Look at the butchering and license with words the Message does to this passage! The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge. [NKJV] The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. [NIV] God’s glory is on tour in the skies, God-craft on exhibit across the horizon. Madame Day holds classes every morning, Professor Night lectures each evening. [Message] Madame Day? Professor Night? Yick!
