NETBible

I tell you the truth, 1  whoever does not receive 2  the kingdom of God like a child 3  will never 4  enter it.”

XREF

NET © Notes

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

sn On receive see John 1:12.

sn The point of the comparison receive the kingdom of God like a child has more to do with a child’s trusting spirit and willingness to be dependent and receive from others than any inherent humility the child might possess.

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