New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
13 People were bringing little children to him in order that he might touch them; and the disciples spoke sternly to them. 13 People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them.
14 But when Jesus saw this, he was indignant and said to them, "Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. 14 When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
15 Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it." 15 I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."
16 And he took them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them. 16 And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.
