Matt.6
[1]
"Beware of practicing your piety before men in order to be seen by them; for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.


[2]
"Thus, when you give alms, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.


[3] But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,
[4] so that your alms may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
[5]
"And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.


[6] But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
[7]
"And in praying do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their many words.


[8] Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
