New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
10 "Beware that you don't despise a single one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels are always in the presence of my heavenly Father. 10 "See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.
11 11 "What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off ?
12 "If a shepherd has one hundred sheep, and one wanders away and is lost, what will he do? Won't he leave the ninety-nine others and go out into the hills to search for the lost one? 12 And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.
13 And if he finds it, he will surely rejoice over it more than over the ninety-nine that didn't wander away! 13 In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.
14 In the same way, it is not my heavenly Father's will that even one of these little ones should perish. 14
