Here you go.  Copy the below code and paste in SSMS, then execute, then modify to meet your needs.

Using PIVOT and UNPIVOT

Limitation: The 0-4 are hard-coded, so if you ever have more than 4 you'll have to manually add that to the T-SQL.
CREATE TABLE #pivot (id int, msg varchar(50))

INSERT INTO #pivot (id, msg) 
VALUES 
   (0, 'message content 1'), 
   (1, 'message content 2'), 
   (2, 'message content 3'), 
   (3, 'message content 4'), 
   (4, 'message content 5') 

SELECT 'Message Content' AS message_content, 
[0], [1], [2], [3], [4]
FROM
(SELECT id, msg
    FROM #pivot) AS pvt
PIVOT 
(
MIN(msg)
FOR id IN ([0], [1], [2], [3], [4])
) AS PivotTable;
