Matthew 6:9 - 34


6:9 - After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

6:10 - Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in 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 unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6:17 - But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;

6:18 - That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which 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 thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

6:23 - But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be 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 unto you, Take no thought 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 meat, 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 taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

6:28 - And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

6:29 - And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

6:30 - Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

6:31 - Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal 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 unto you.

6:34 - Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
