“Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.”
King James Version (KJV)
18:14 So it is not the will of your Father - Neither doth my Father despise the least of them. Observe the gradation. The angels, the Son, the Father.
Mt 18:14 Even so it is not the will of your Father, etc. As the shepherd feels a deep and anxious interest in the straying sheep, and seeks to hunt and to save it, so the Father above seeks the salvation of all the humble ones in his kingdom.
