NET © Notes

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

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

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