9And I say unto you, Ask , and it shall be given you; seek , and ye shall find ; knock , and it shall be opened unto you. 10For every one that asketh receiveth ; and he that seeketh findeth ; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened .11If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father , will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? 12Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
48But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given , of him shall be much required : and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
