7 Revised Standard Version Passage

7"Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.Ask, Seek, Knock Mt.7.7-12 (Galilee) | Lk.11.9-13
8For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 
9Or what man of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? 
10Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? 
11If you then, 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! 
12So whatever you wish that men would do to you, do so to them; for this is the law and the prophets.
