2And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them, καὶ προσκαλεσάμενος παιδίον ἐστησεν αὐτὸ ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν
3and said, "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. καὶ εἶπεν, Ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ἐὰν μὴ στραφῆτε καὶ γένησθε ὡς τὰ παιδία, οὐ μὴ εἰσέλθητε εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν τῶν οὐρανῶν.
4Whoever humbles himself like this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. ὁστις οὖν ταπεινώσει ἑαυτὸν ὡς τὸ παιδίον τοῦτο, οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ μείζων ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ τῶν οὐρανῶν.
