Giving to the Poor and Prayer

1 "Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to R176 be noticed by them; otherwise you have no reward with your Father who is in heaven.

2 "So when you give F98 to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may R177 be honored by men. Truly R178 I say to you, they have their reward in full. 3 "But when you give F99 to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving F100 will be in secret; and your R179 Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

5 "When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand R180 and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so R181 F101 that they may be seen by men. Truly R182 I say to you, they have their reward in full. 6 "But you, when you pray, go R183 into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your R184 Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

7 "And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many R185 words. 8 "So do not be like them; for your R186 Father knows what you need before you ask Him.

9 "Pray, R187 then, in this way: `Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.

10 `Your R188 kingdom come.

Your R189 will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

11 `Give R190 us this day our F102 daily bread.

12 `And forgive R191 us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

13 `And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver R192 us from evil. R193 F103 [For F104 Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.]'

14 "For R194 if you forgive others F105 for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 "But if R195 you do not forgive others, F106 then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.

Fasting; The True Treasure; Wealth (Mammon)

16 "Whenever R196 you fast, do not put on a gloomy face as the hypocrites do, for they neglect F107 their appearance so that they will be noticed by men when they are fasting. Truly R197 I say to you, they have their reward in full. 17 "But you, when you fast, anoint R198 your head and wash your face 18 so that your fasting will not be noticed by men, but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father R199 who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

19 "Do R200 not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 "But store up for yourselves treasures R201 in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; 21 for where R202 your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

22 "The R203 eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, F108 your whole body will be full of light. 23 "But if your R204 eye is bad, F109 your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!

24 "No R205 one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth. R206 F110

The Cure for Anxiety

25 "For R207 this reason I say to you, do F111 not be worried R208 about your life, F112 as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 "Look R209 at the birds of the air, F113 that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 "And who of you by being worried R210 can add R211 a single hour F114 to his life? F115 28 "And why are you worried R212 about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, 29 yet I say to you that not even Solomon R213 in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 30 "But if God so clothes the grass R214 of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You R215 of little faith! 31 "Do not worry R216 then, saying, `What will we eat?' or `What will we drink?' or `What will we wear for clothing?' 32 "For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your R217 heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 "But seek F116 first His F117 kingdom and His righteousness, and all R218 these things will be added F118 to you.

34 "So do not worry R219 about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care F119 for itself. Each F120 day has enough trouble of its own.
