King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
9 And I say unto you, Ask , and it shall be given you; seek , and ye shall find ; knock , and it shall be opened unto you. 9 "So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
10 For every one that asketh receiveth ; and he that seeketh findeth ; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened . 10 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
11 If 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? 11 "Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead?
12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?
13 If 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? 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!"
