They were bringing to him little children, that he should touch them, but the disciples rebuked those who were bringing them.
But when Jesus saw it, he was moved with indignation, and said to them, "Allow the little children to come to me! Don't forbid them, for to such belong the kingdom of God.
Most assuredly I tell you, whoever will not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he will in no way enter therein."
He took them in his arms, and blessed them, laying his hands on them.
