Luke 18:15-17 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

15 And they brought to him young children, that he should touch them; and when the disciples saw this thing, they blamed them.

16 But Jesus called together them, and said, Suffer ye children to come to me, and do not ye forbid them, for of such is the kingdom of heavens.

17 Truly I say to you, whoever shall not take the kingdom of God as a child, he shall not enter into it.

Luke 18:15-17 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

15 They brought to him also babes, so that he could touch them. When his disciples saw that, they rebuked the people. 16 But Jesus called them to him and said, Allow the children to come to me, and do not forbid them. For of such is the kingdom of God. 17 Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child, he shall not enter therein.
