7 “[a]Ask, and it will be given to you; [b]seek, and you will find; [c]knock, and it will be opened to you.8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.9 Or what person is there among you [d]who, when his son asks for a loaf of bread, [e]will give him a stone?10 Or [f]if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he?11 So if you, despite being [g]evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
9 “So I say to you, [a]ask, and it will be given to you; [b]seek, and you will find; [c]knock, and it will be opened to you.10 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, it will be opened.11 Now [d]which one of you fathers will his son ask for a [e]fish, and instead of a fish, he will give him a snake?12 Or he will even ask for an egg, and his father will give him a scorpion?13 So if you, despite being [f]evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will [g]your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?”
