22 be also. The lamp of the body is the eye:

if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body 23 shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil,

thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If

therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, 24 how great is the darkness! No man can serve

two masters : for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one,

and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God 25 and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Be

not anxious 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

the food, and the body than the raiment? 26 Behold the birds of the heaven, that they sow

not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; and your heavenly Father feedeth them.

Are not ye of much more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add one 28 cubit unto his 'stature? And why are ye? Or, age

anxious concerning raiment ? Consider the

lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, 20 neither do they spin : yet 1 say unto you, that

even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed 30 like one of these. But if God doth so clothe

the grass of the field, which to-day is, and to

morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much 31 more clothe you, O ve of little faith? Be not

therefore anxious, saying, What shall we eat?

or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall 32 we be clothed ? For after all these things do

the Gentiles seek; for your heavenly Father

knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first his kingdom, and his righteous

ness; and all these things shall be added unto 34 you. Be not therefore anxious for the mor

row: for the morrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with y what judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged : and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured unto you. And why beholdest thou 3 the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me 4 cast out the mote out of thine eye; and lo, the beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, 5 cast out first the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, 6 neither cast your pearls before the swine, lest haply they trample them under their feet, and turn and rend you.

Ask, and it shall be given you ; seek, and ye 7 shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: for every one that asketh receiveth; and 8 he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there 9 of you, who, if his son shall ask him for a loaf, will give him a stone; or if he shall ask for a 10 fish, will give him a serpent? If ye then, being 11 evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? All things therefore whatsoever 12 ye would that men should do unto you, even so do ye also unto them: for this is the law and

the prophets. .. 1 Some ancient Enter ye in by the narrow gate: for wide 'is 13 omit is the the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to
