Luke 11:8-13

NSB(i) 8 »I tell you even if he will not rise and give you what you need because he is your friend, he will arise and give you what you need because you keep asking. 9 »I say to you: Ask and it will be given you. Seek and you will find. Knock and it will be opened to you. 10 »Every one who asks receives. Everyone who seeks will find. It will be opened to everyone who knocks. 11 »What father would give his son a stone when he asked for a loaf? What father would give a serpent when his son asked for a fish? 12 »If he asked for an egg would he give a scorpion? 13 »If you who are 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?«
