Continuation of the sermon on the mount. MW. 6.

“Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have “ no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 2“ Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do a Ro. 12. 8. “not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypo“ crites do in the synagogues and in the streets, “ that they may have glory of men. Verily I

say unto you, They have their reward. But
“ when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand
4“ know what thy right hand doeth : that thine

“ alms may be in secret: and thy Father which
“ seeth in secret himself shall reward thee

“ 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 of men.

Verily I say unto you, They have their re6“ ward. But thou, when thou prayest, "enter 2 Kings

“ into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy “ door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; “and thy Father which seeth in secret shall 7" reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use • Eccles. 5. “ not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: " for 2

d 1 Kings they think that they shall be heard for their 18. 26, 29. “ much speaking. Be not ye therefore like “ unto them : for your Father knoweth what

things ye have need of, before ye ask him. “ After this manner therefore pray ye: Our

“ Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy .Acts 21. 10“ name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done 14.
