|Matthew 18:1-6||Mark 9:33-37||Luke 9:46-48|
1At that hour the disciples came to Jesus, saying, Who is
the greater in the kingdom of Heaven?
2And Jesus called a little child to Him and set him in
3and said; Truly I say to you, Unless
you are converted and become as little children, you shall not enter into the
kingdom of Heaven.
4Therefore whoever shall humble himself like this little
child, this one is the greater in the kingdom of Heaven.
5And whoever shall receive one such little child in My
name receives Me.
6But whoever shall offend one of these little ones who
believes in Me, it would be better for him that an ass's millstone were hung
around his neck, and he be sunk in the depth of the sea.
33And He came to Capernaum. And being in the house, He
asked them; What was it that you disputed among yourselves
in the way?
34But they were silent. For in the way they had disputed
among themselves who was the greatest.
35And He sat down and called the twelve and said to them;
If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and
servant of all.
36And He took a child and embraced it, and set him in
their midst. And He said to them;
37Whoever receives one of such children
on My name receives Me. And whoever receives Me does not only receives Me, but Him
who sent Me.
46And an argument came in among them, who might be the
greater of them.
47And seeing the argument of their heart, Jesus took a
child and set him beside Him.
48And He said to them; Whoever shall
receive this child in My name receives Me. And whoever shall receive Me receives
Him who sent Me. For he who is least among you all, he shall be great.
