John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Mark 10:14

But when Jesus saw it
Observed that his disciples reproved those that brought their children to, him,

he was much displeased;
with his disciples, who took too much upon them; for they ought first, to have known their master's will; whether it was his pleasure to grant the favour desired for these children, and not to have forbid them of themselves:

and said unto them;
the disciples, as the Persic version reads:

suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for
of such is the kingdom of God;
or "of them who" are, (Nylh Kya) , "as these", as the Syriac version, renders the words; or, as the Arabic, who "are like to these"; and the Persic, who are "like to these little children"; in innocence and humility; (See Gill on Matthew 19:14).
