Sawyer(i) 8 I tell you if he will not arise and give him on account of being his friend, yet, on account of his importunity, he will arise and give him as many as he needs. 9 And I tell you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you 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 of you, who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? or if he asks also for a fish, will for a fish give him a serpent? 12 or if he asks also for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall the Father from heaven give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him.
