1 'BE CAREFUL not to make a show of your religion before men; if you do, no reward awaits you in your Father's house in heaven.
Teaching about Almsgiving Mt.6.1-4 (Galilee) - Προσέχετε [δὲ] τὴν δικαιοσύνην ὑμῶν μὴ ποιεῖν ἐμπροσθεν τῶν ἀνθρώπων πρὸς τὸ θεαθῆναι αὐτοῖς· εἰ δὲ μή γε, μισθὸν οὐκ ἐχετε παρὰ τῷ πατρὶ ὑμῶν τῷ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς.
2 'Thus, when you do some act of charity, do not announce it with a flourish of trumpets, as the hypocrites do in synagogue and in the streets to win admiration from men. I tell you this: they have their reward already.  Ὁταν οὖν ποιῇς ἐλεημοσύνην, μὴ σαλπίσῃς ἐμπροσθέν σου, ὡσπερ οἱ ὑποκριταὶ ποιοῦσιν ἐν ταῖς συναγωγαῖς καὶ ἐν ταῖς ῥύμαις, ὁπως δοξασθῶσιν ὑπὸ τῶν ἀνθρώπων· ἀμὴν λέγ ω ὑμῖν, ἀπέχουσιν τὸν μισθον αὐτῶν.
3 No; when you do some act of charity, do not let your left hand know what your right is doing;  σοῦ δὲ ποιοῦντος ἐλεημοσύνην μὴ γνώτω ἡ ἀριστερά σου τί ποιεῖ ἡ δεξιά σου,
4 your good deed must be secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you. [Some winesses add: openly.]
 ὁπως ᾖ σου ἡ ἐλεημοσύνη ἐν τῷ κρυπτῷ· καὶ ὁ πατήρ σου ὁ βλέπων ἐν τῷ κρυπτῷ ἀποδώσει σοι.
5 'Again, when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites; they love to say their prayers standing up in synagogue and at the street-corners, for everyone to see them. I tell you this: they have their reward already. Teaching about Prayer Mt.6.5-15 (Galilee) - | Lk.11.2-4Καὶ ὁταν προσεύχησθε, οὐκ ἐσεσθε ὡς οἱ ὑποκριταί· ὅτι φιλοῦσιν ἐν ταῖς συναγωγαῖς καὶ ἐν ταῖς γωνίαις τῶν πλατειῶν ἑστῶτες προσεύχεσθαι, ὁπως φανῶσιν τοῖς ἀνθρώποις· ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ἀπέχουσιν τὸν μισθὸν αὐτῶν.
6 But when you pray, go into a room by yourself, shut the door, and pray to your Father who is there in the secret place; and your Father who sees what is secret will reward you. [Some witnesses add: openly.]
 σὺ δὲ ὁταν προσεύχῃ, εἰσελθε εἰς τὸ ταμεῖόν σου καὶ κλείσας τὴν θύραν σου πρόσευξαι τῷ πατρί σου τῷ ἐν τῷ κρυπτῷ· καὶ ὁ πατήρ σου ὁ βλέπων ἐν τῷ κρυπτῷ ἀποδώσει σοι.
7 'In your prayers do not go babbling on like the heathen, who imagine that the more they say the more likely they are to be heard.  Προσευχόμενοι δὲ μὴ βατταλογήσητε ὡσπερ οἱ ἐθνικοί, δοκοῦσιν γὰρ ὅτι ἐν τῇ πολυλογίᾳ αὐτῶν εἰσακουσθήσονται.
8 Do not imitate them. Your Father knows what your needs are before you ask him.
 μὴ οὖν ὁμοιωθῆτε αὐτοῖς, οἶδεν γὰρ ὁ πατὴρ ὑμῶν ὧν χρείαν ἐχετε πρὸ τοῦ ὑμᾶς αἰτῆσαι αὐτόν.
9 'This is how you should pray:
    "Our Father in heaven,
    Thy name be hallowed,
 Οὑτως οὖν προσεύχεσθε ὑμεῖς·

Πάτερ ἡμῶν ὁ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς,
ἀγιασθήτω τὸ ὀνομά σου,

10 Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
On earth as in heaven.
 ἐλθέτω ἡ βασιλεία σου,
γενηθήτω τὸ θέλημά σου,
ὡς ἐν οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς.
11 Give us today our daily bread. [Or: our bread for the morrow.]
 Τὸν ἀρτον ἡμῶν τὸν ἐπιούσιον δὸς ἡμῖν σήμερον·
12 Forgive us the wrong we have done,
As we have forgiven those who have wronged us.
 Καὶ ἀφες ἡμῖν τὰ ὀφειλήματα ἡμῶν,
ὡς καὶ ἡμεῖς ἀφήκαμεν τοῖς ὀφειλέταις ἡμῶν·
13 And do not bring us to the test,
But save us from the evil one." [Or: from evil. Some witnesses add: For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, for ever. Amen.]
 καὶ μὴ εἰσενέγκῃς ἡμᾶς εἰς πειρασμόν,
ἀλλὰ ῥῦσαι ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ τοῦ πονηροῦ.
14 For if you forgive others the wrongs they have done, your heavenly Father will also forgive you;  Ἐὰν γὰρ ἀφῆτε τοῖς ἀνθρώποις τὰ παραπτώματα αὐτῶν, ἀφήσει καὶ ὑμῖν ὁ πατὴρ ὑμῶν ὁ οὐράνιος·
15 but if you do not forgive others, then the wrongs you have done will not be forgiven by your Father.
 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ ἀφῆτε τοῖς ἀνθρώποις, οὐδὲ ὁ πατὴρ ὑμῶν ἀφήσει τὰ παραπτώματα ὑμῶν.
16 'So too when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites: they make their faces unsightly so that other people may see that they are fasting. I tell you this: they have their reward already. Teaching about Fasting Mt.6.16-18 (Galilee) - Ὁταν δὲ νηστεύητε, μὴ γίνεσθε ὡς οἱ ὑποκριταὶ σκυθρωποί, ἀφανίζουσιν γὰρ τὰ πρόσωπα αὐτῶν ὁπως φανῶσιν τοῖς ἀνθρώποις νηστεύοντες· ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ἀπέχουσιν τὸν μισθὸν α ὐτῶν.
17 But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face,  σὺ δὲ νηστεύων ἀλειψαί σου τὴν κεφαλὴν καὶ τὸ πρόσωπόν σου νίψαι,
18 so that men may not see that you are fasting, but only your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees what is secret will give you your reward.
 ὁπως μὴ φανῇς τοῖς ἀνθρώποις νηστεύων ἀλλὰ τῷ πατρί σου τῷ ἐν τῷ κρυφαίῳ· καὶ ὁ πατήρ σου
ὁ βλέπων ἐν τῷ κρυφαίῳ ἀποδώσει σοι.
19 'DO NOT STORE UP for yourselves treasure on earth, where it grows rusty and moth-eaten, and thieves break in to steal it. Treasure in Heaven Mt.6.19-21 (Galilee) - | Lk.12.33-34Μὴ θησαυρίζετε ὑμῖν θησαυροὺς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ὁπου σὴς καὶ βρῶσις ἀφανίζει, καὶ ὁπου κλέπται διορύσσουσιν καὶ κλέπτουσιν·
20 Store up treasure in heaven, where there is no moth and no rust to spoil it, no thieves to break in and steal.  θησαυρίζετε δὲ ὑμῖν θησαυροὺς ἐν οὐρανῷ, ὁπου οὐτε σὴς οὐτε βρῶσις ἀφανίζει, καὶ ὁπου κλέπται οὐ διορύσσουσιν οὐδὲ κλέπτουσιν·
21 For where your wealth is, there will your heart be also.
 ὁπου γάρ ἐστιν ὁ θησαυρός σου, ἐκεῖ ἐσται καὶ ἡ καρδία σου.
22 'The lamp of the body is the eye. If your eyes are sound, you will have light for your whole body; The Light of the Body Mt.6.22-23 (Galilee) - | Lk.11.34-36Ὁ λύχνος τοῦ σώματός ἐστιν ὁ ὀφθαλμός. ἐὰν οὖν ᾖ ὁ ὀφθαλμός σου ἀπλοῦς, ὁλον τὸ σῶμά σου φωτεινὸν ἐσται·
23 if the eyes are bad, your whole body will be in darkness. If then the only light you have is darkness, the darkness is doubly dark.
 ἐὰν δὲ ὁ ὀφθαλμός σου πονηρὸς ᾖ, ὁλον τὸ σῶμά σου σκοτεινὸν ἐσται. εἰ οὖν τὸ φῶς τὸ ἐν σοὶ σκότος ἐστίν, τὸ σκότος πόσον.
24 'No servant can be slave to two masters; for either he will hate the first and love the second, or he will be devoted to the first and think nothing of the second. You cannot serve God and Money.
God and Mammon Mt.6.24 (Galilee) - | Lk.16.13Οὐδεὶς δύναται δυσὶ κυρίοις δουλεύειν· ἢ γὰρ τὸν ἑνα μισήσει καὶ τὸν ἑτερον ἀγαπήσει, ἢ ἑνὸς ἀνθέξεται καὶ τοῦ ἑτέρου καταφρονήσει· οὐ δύνασθε θεῷ δουλεύειν καὶ μαμωνᾷ.
25 'Therefore I bid you put away anxious thoughts about food and drink to keep you alive, and clothes to cover your body. Surely life is more than food, the body more than clothes. Care and Anxiety Mt.6.25-34 (Galilee) - | Lk.12.22-34Διὰ τοῦτο λέγω ὑμῖν, μὴ μεριμνᾶτε τῇ ψυχῇ ὑμῶν τί φάγητε [ἢ τί πίητε,] μηδὲ τῷ σώματι ὑμῶν τί ἐνδύσησθε· οὐχὶ ἡ ψυχὴ πλεῖόν ἐστιν τῆς τροφῆς καὶ τὸ σῶμα τοῦ ἐνδυ ματος;
26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow and reap and store in barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. You are worth more than the birds!  ἐμβλέψατε εἰς τὰ πετεινὰ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, ὅτι οὐ σπείρουσιν οὐδὲ θερίζουσιν οὐδὲ συνάγουσιν εἰς ἀποθήκας, καὶ ὁ πατὴρ ὑμῶν ὁ οὐράνιος τρέφει αὐτά· οὐχ ὑμεῖς μᾶλλον διαφέρε τε αὐτῶν;
27 Is there a man of you who by anxious thought can add a foot to his height? [Or: a day to his life.]  τίς δὲ ἐξ ὑμῶν μεριμνῶν δύναται προσθεῖναι ἐπὶ τὴν ἡλικίαν αὐτοῦ πῆχυν ἑνὰ;
28 And why be anxious about clothes? Consider how the lilies grow in the fields; they do not work, they do not spin; [One witness reads: Consider the lilies: they neither card nor spin, nor labour.]  καὶ περὶ ἐνδύματος τί μεριμνᾶτὲ καταμάθετε τὰ κρίνα τοῦ ἀγροῦ πῶς αὐξάνουσιν· οὐ κοπιῶσιν οὐδὲ νήθουσιν·
29 and yet, I tell you, even Solomon in all his splendour was not attired like one of these.
 λέγω δὲ ὑμῖν ὅτι οὐδὲ Σολομὼν ἐν πάσῃ τῇ δόξῃ αὐτοῦ περιεβάλετο ὡς ἓν τούτων.
30 But if that is how God clothes the grass in the fields, which is there today, and tomorrow is thrown on the stove, will he not all the more clothe you?  εἰ δὲ τὸν χόρτον τοῦ ἀγροῦ σήμερον ὀντα καὶ αὐριον εἰς κλίβανον βαλλόμενον ὁ θεὸς οὑτως ἀμφιέννυσιν, οὐ πολλῷ μᾶλλον ὑμᾶς, ὀλιγόπιστοὶ;
31 No, do not ask anxiously, "What are we to eat? What are we to drink? What shall we wear?"  μὴ οὖν μεριμνήσητε λέγοντες, Τί φάγωμεν; ἠ, Τί πίωμεν; ἠ, Τί περιβαλώμεθὰ,
32 All these are things for the heathen to run after, not for you, because your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.  πάντα γὰρ ταῦτα τὰ ἐθνη ἐπιζητοῦσιν· οἶδεν γὰρ ὁ πατὴρ ὑμῶν ὁ οὐράνιος ὅτι χρῄζετε τούτων ἀπάντων.
33 Set your mind on God's kingdom and his justice before everything else, and all the rest will come to you as well.  ζητεῖτε δὲ πρῶτον τὴν βασιλείαν καὶ τὴν δικαιοσύνην αὐτοῦ, καὶ ταῦτα πάντα προστεθήσεται ὑμῖν.
34 So do not be anxious about tomorrow; tomorrow will look after itself. Each day has troubles enough of its own.
 μὴ οὖν μεριμνήσητε εἰς τὴν αὐριον, ἡ γὰρ αὐριον μεριμνήσει ἑαυτῆς· ἀρκετὸν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἡ κακία αὐτῆς.
