ABU(i) 8 I say to you, though he will not rise and give him because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needs. 9 I also say to you: Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you. 10 For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened. 11 And what father is there among you, of whom if his son ask bread, he will give him a stone; or a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent? 12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he give him a scorpion? 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?
