Matthew 6


6:1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen by
 them: otherwise ye have no reward from your Father who is in
 heaven.
6:2 Therefore, when thou doest [thy] alms, do not sound a
 trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do, in the synagogues,
 and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Verily,
 I say to you, they have their reward.
6:3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what
 thy right hand doeth:
6:4 That thy alms may be in secret; and thy Father who seeth in
 secret, himself will reward thee openly.
6:5 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 by men.
 Verily, I say to you, they have their reward.
6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when
 thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father who is in secret,
 and thy Father who seeth in secret, will reward thee openly.
6:7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen
 do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much
 speaking.
6:8 Therefore be ye not like them: for your Father knoweth what
 things ye need before ye ask him.
6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father who art in
 heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as [it is] in
 heaven.
6:11 Give us this day our daily bread.
6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
6:13 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.
6:14 For, if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly
 Father will also forgive you:
6:15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will
 your Father forgive your trespasses.
6:16 Moreover, when ye fast, be not as the hypocrites, of a sad
 countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may
 appear to men to fast. Verily, I say to you, they have their
 reward.
6:17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thy head, and wash thy
 face;
6:18 That thou mayest not appear to men to fast, but to thy
 Father, who is in secret: and thy Father, who seeth in secret,
 shall reward thee openly.
6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth
 and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and
 steal:
6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where
 neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not
 break through nor steal.
6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
6:22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thy eye be
 single, thy whole body will be full of light.
6:23 But if thy eye be evil, thy whole body will be full of
 darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee is darkness,
 how great [is] that darkness!
6:24 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.
6:25 Therefore I say to you, Be not anxious 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 food, and the
 body than raiment?
6:26 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?
6:27 Which of you by anxious care can add one cubit to his
 stature?
6:28 And why are ye anxious for raiment? Consider the lilies of
 the field how they grow? they toil not, neither do they spin?
6:29 And yet I say to you, that even Solomon in all his glory
 was not arrayed like one of these.
6:30 Wherefore, if God so clotheth the grass of the field, which
 to-day is, and to-morrow is cast into the oven, [will he] not
 much more [clothe] you, O ye of little faith?
6:31 Therefore be not anxious, saying, What shall we eat? or
 what shall we drink? or, with what shall we be clothed?
6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek) for your
 heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his
 righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
6:34 Therefore be not anxious for the morrow: for the morrow
 will be solicitous for the things of itself. Sufficient to the
 day [is] its own evil.
