9 And I say unto you, fAsk, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? 12 Or if he shall ask an egg, will he †offer him a gscorpion? 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: hhow much more shall your heavenly Father give ithe Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
