Matthew 7:6-8 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]Give ye not that which is holy to dogs, neither cast ye your [b]pearls before swine, lest they tread them under their feet, and turning again, all to rent you.

[c]Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and ye shall find: knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

For whosoever asketh, receiveth: and he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.


  1. Matthew 7:6 The stiffnecked and stubborn enemies of the Gospel are unworthy to have it preached unto them.
  2. Matthew 7:6 A pearl hath his name among the Grecians, for the orient brightness that is in it: and a pearl was in ancient time in great estimation among the Latins: for a pearl that Cleopatra had, was valued at two hundred and fifty thousand crowns, and the word is now borrowed from that, to signify the most precious heavenly doctrine.
  3. Matthew 7:7 Prayers are a sure refuge in all miseries.
