38 And John answered him,

MATTHEW XVIII. Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in heaven their angels do always behold 11 the face of my Father which is in heaven. For the Son of 12 man is come to save that which was lost. How think ye?

Moreover, if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone. If he 16 shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother ; but if he will

not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more; that

in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may 17 be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them,
