Even if your sun will set
or the world will undress you,
just be still.
Know that to every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
|8||I tell you, if the man does not get up and give it to him for friendship's sake, persistence will make him get up and give his friend all he wants.|
|9||And I tell you, Ask, and it will be given; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.|
|10||For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.|
|11||What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent;|
|12||or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?|
|13||If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!"|
