Matthew 18 KJV

2 And Jesus called a little child unto him , and set him in the midst of them,
6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come ; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh !
10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always * behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost .
12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray , doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray ?
13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you *, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray .
14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish .
17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but * if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask , it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
24 And when he had begun to reckon , one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.a
