And people were bringing children to him that he might touch
them, but the disciples rebuked them. 14 When Jesus saw
this he became indignant and said to them, "Let the
children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom
of God belongs to such as these. 15 Amen, I say to you,
whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child
will not enter it." 16 Then he embraced them and blessed
them, placing his hands on them.
13 Then children
were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them
and pray. The disciples rebuked them, 14 but Jesus said,
"Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them;
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
15 After he placed his hands on them, he went away.
