ECB(i) 8 I word to you, Though he not rise and give him because he is his friend, yet indeed because of his impudence he rises and gives him as much as he needs. 9 And I word to you, Ask, and it is given you: seek, and you you find: knock, and it opens to you. 10 For everyone who asks, takes; and whoever seeks, finds; and knocks, and it opens. 11 And what father, if a son asks bread of you, gives him a stone? Or if a fish, for a fish gives a serpent? 12 Or whenever he asks an egg, gives him a scorpion? 13 So if you, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children: how much more your Father in the heavenlies gives the Holy Spirit to them who ask him?
