New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
15 People were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them; and when the disciples saw it, they sternly ordered them not to do it. 15 People were also bringing babies to Jesus to have him touch them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them.
16 But Jesus called for them and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. 16 But Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
17 Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it." 17 I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."
