27 And he came to Capernaum: and being in the house he asked them,
What was it that ye disputed among yourselves by the way?
28 But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed
among themselves, who should be the greatest.
29 At the same time came the disciples unto Joshua, saying, Who is the
greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
30 And Joshua, perceiving the thought of their heart, And he
sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of
all, and servant of all.
31 And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and
when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and
become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
32 Whosoever therefore shall
humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of
33 And whoso shall receive one
such little child in my name receiveth me and whosoever shall receive me,
receiveth not me, but him that sent me : for he that is least among you all, the
same shall be great.
