Matthew 18:3-4

Context
18:3 and said, “I tell you the truth, 1  unless you turn around and become like little children, 2  you will never 3  enter the kingdom of heaven! 18:4 Whoever then humbles himself like this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

1 tn Grk “Truly (ἀμήν, amhn), I say to you.”

2 sn The point of the comparison become like little children has more to do with a child’s trusting spirit, as well as willingness to be dependent and receive from others, than any inherent humility the child might possess.

3 tn The negation in Greek (οὐ μή, ou mh) is very strong here.
