7 "Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you.
8 For everyone that asks receives, and he that seeks finds, and to him that knocks, it shall be opened.
8 For whoever asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, the door is opened.
9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son should ask for bread, will give to him a stone?
10 And if he should ask for a fish, he will give to him a serpent?
10 or if he shall ask for a fish, will give him a serpent?
10 or if he were to ask him for a fish, would offer him a snake?
11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, by how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
