New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
7 "Keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for. Keep on looking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened. 7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
8 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And the door is opened to everyone who knocks. 8 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
9 You parents -- if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead? 9 "Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone?
10 Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not! 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake?
11 If you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him." 11 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 good gifts to those who ask him!
