Thomson(i) 8 I say to you, though he will not rise and give him on account of being his friend; yet on account of his importunity he will rise and give him what he wanteth. 9 Now I say to you, Ask, and you shall obtain: seek, and you shall find: knock, and the door will be opened to you. 10 For every one who asketh obtaineth: and he who seeketh, findeth: and to him who knocketh, the door will be opened. 11 What father among you would give his son a stone, when he asketh for bread? Or, if he asketh for a fish, would, instead of a fish, give him a serpent? 12 Or, if he asked for an egg, would give him a scorpion? 13 If you, then, bad as you are, know how to give good gifts to your children; how much more will your heavenly father give a holy spirit to them who ask him?
