Luke 11:9-10

Context

11:9 “So 1  I tell you: Ask, 2  and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door 3  will be opened for you. 11:10 For everyone who asks 4  receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door 5  will be opened.

1 tn Here καί (kai, from καγώ [kagw]) has been translated as “so” to indicate the conclusion drawn from the preceding parable.

2 sn The three present imperatives in this verse (Ask…seek…knock) are probably intended to call for a repeated or continual approach before God.

3 tn Grk “it”; the referent (a door) is implied by the context and has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 sn The actions of asking, seeking, and knocking are repeated here from v. 9 with the encouragement that God does respond.

5 tn Grk “it”; the referent (a door) is implied by the context and has been specified in the translation for clarity.
