Comparison: 2 Nephi 9:42 -> Matthew 7:8

2 Nephi 9:42 (1830 edition page 82) Matthew 7:8
And whoso knocketh, to him will he open, and the wise, and the learned, and they that are rich, which are puffed up because of their learning, and their wisdom, and their riches; yea, they are they, whom he despiseth; and save they shall cast these things away, and consider themselves fools before God, and come down in the depths of humility, he will not open unto them. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
