Matthew 6:4

New Testament

1 “Be careful not to display your righteousness merely to be seen by people. Otherwise you have no reward with your Father in heaven. 2 Thus whenever you do charitable giving, do not blow a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in synagogues and on streets so that people will praise them. I tell you the truth, they have their reward! 3 But when you do your giving, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your gift may be in secret. And your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you. 5 “Whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites because they love to pray while standing in synagogues and on street corners so that people can see them. Truly I say to you, they have their reward! 6 But whenever you pray, go into your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you.

1 Stretch out your hands to the poor according to your strength. 2 Hide not your silver in the earth. 3 Help the faithful man in affliction, and affliction will not find you in the time of your trouble. 4 And every grievous and cruel yoke that come upon you bear all for the sake of the Lord, and thus you will find your reward in the day of judgment. 5 It is good to go morning, midday, and evening into the Lord’s dwelling, for the glory of your creator. 6 Because every breathing (thing) glorifies him, and every creature visible (physical) and invisible (spiritual) returns him praise.
