1 Take heed that ye despise not one of
these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always
behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
2 For the Son of man is come to
save that which was lost.
3 How think ye? if a man have an
hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and
nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
4 And if so be that he find it,
verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and
nine which went not astray.
so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these
little ones should perish.
