11 Revised Standard Version Passage

9And I tell you, Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 
10For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 
11What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; 
12or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 
13If 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!"
