Matthew 7:7-11 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

Ask ye, and it shall be given to you; seek ye, and ye shall find; knock ye, and it shall be opened to you.

For each that asketh, taketh; and he that seeketh, findeth; and it shall be opened to him, that knocketh.

What man of you is, that if his son ask him bread [Or who of you is a man, whom if his son ask bread], whether he will take him a stone?

10 Or if he ask [a] fish, whether he will give him an adder? [Or if he shall ask a fish, whether he shall give to him a serpent?]

11 Therefore if ye, when ye be evil men, know how to give good gifts to your sons, how much more your Father that is in heavens shall give good things to men that ask him?

Matthew 7:7-11 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened to you. For whosoever asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened. Is there anyone among you who, if his son asked for bread, would offer him a stone? 10 Or if he asked for fish, would give him a serpent? 11 If then you who are 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?

Matthew 7:7-11 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and ye shall find: knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

For whosoever asketh, receiveth: and he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.

For what man is there among you, which if his son ask him bread, would give him a stone?

10 Or if he ask fish, will he give him a serpent?

11 If ye then, which are evil, can give to your children good gifts, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven, give good things to them that ask him?
