(1) Thom 4:1 = POxy654 4:1

Jesus said, "The person old in days won't hesitate to ask a little child seven days old about the place of life, and that person will live. 2 For many of the first will be last, 3 and will become a single one." [Complete Gospels]

“[λέγει Ἰη(σοῦ)ς]· οὐκ ἀποκνήσει ἄνθ[ρωπος πλήρης ἡμε]ρῶν ἐπερωτῆσαι πα[ιδίον ἑπτὰ ἡμε]ρῶν περὶ τοῦ τόπου τῆ[ς ζωῆς, καὶ ζή]σετε· ὅτι πολλοὶ ἔσονται π[ρῶτοι ἔσχατοι καὶ] οἱ ἔσχατοι πρῶτοι, καὶ [εἰς ἓν καταντήσου]σιν.” (Thomas 1:4 AGOSP-T)
