Jesus Blesses The Children

And it came to pass that
he commanded that their
little children should be brought.

So they brought their little children
and set them down upon the ground round about him,
and Jesus stood in the midst;
and the multitude gave way
till they had all been brought unto him.

And it came to pass that
when they had all been brought,
and Jesus stood in the midst,
he commanded the multitude that
they should kneel down upon the ground.

And he took their little children,
one by one, and blessed them,
and prayed unto the Father for them.

And when he had done this he wept again;

And he spake unto the multitude,
and said unto them: Behold your little ones.

And as they looked to behold
they cast their eyes towards heaven,
and they saw the heavens open,
and they saw angels descending out of heaven
as it were in the midst of fire;
and they came down and encircled those little ones about,
and they were encircled about with fire;
and the angels did minister unto them.
