How do you display content of a .JSON file using Discord.js?

Currently my code reads out as

if(message.content.startsWith(prefix + 'readback')) {

  fs.readFile('msgs.json', (err, data) => {
    if (err) throw err;
    let _msgs = JSON.parse(data);
    message.channel.send(_msgs);
    console.log(_msgs)
  });
}

with all appropriate constants and variables

While using prefix + 'readback, the Discord Bot displays _msgs as [object Object] – to make sure it wasn’t an issue with the code, I added console.log(_msgs), and the correct JSON file content displays in the console. Is there a way to get the Bot to display the contents of the JSON file in a channel?

    think I would never understand. It seems too complicated
    and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Internet
