|1||Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.||(U)|
|2||Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.|
|3||But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:||let not thy left hand know|
That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in
secret himself shall reward thee openly.
|5||And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.|
|6||But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.|
|7||But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.||[ L · All ] vain repetitions|
|8||Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.|
|9||After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.||After this manner|
|10||Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.||Thy kingdom come|
|11||Give us this day our daily bread.||Thy will daily bread|
|12||And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.||forgive us our debts|
|13||And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.||Amen|
|14||For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:|
But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your
Father forgive your trespasses.
|16||Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.||[ L · All ] when ye fast|
|17||But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;|
That thou appear
not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy
Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
|19||Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:|
|20||But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:|
|21||For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.|
|22||The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.||light of the body|
But if thine eye
be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light
that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
|24||No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.||[ L · All ] serve God and mammon two masters|
|25||Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?|
|26||Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?||[ L · All ]|
|27||Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?||taking thought|
|28||And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:||Consider the lilies|
|29||And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.|
|30||Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?|
|31||Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?||take no thought|
|32||(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.|
|33||But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.||kingdom|
Take therefore no
thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things
of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
|no thought for the morrow|
