Etheridge(i) 8 I tell you if for friendship's sake he will not give him, (yet) because of importunity he will arise and give him as many as he needeth. 9 I say also to you, Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you. 10 For every one who asketh receiveth, and who seeketh findeth, and who knocketh hath it opened to him. 11 For what father (is there) among you who, if his son shall ask bread, will reach to him a stone? or should he ask a fish, how instead of a fish will he reach to him a serpent? 12 or if an egg he shall ask, will he a scorpion reach to him? 13 And if you, who are evil, know to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father from the heavens give the Spirit of Holiness to those who ask him!
