6 “Be careful not to practice your righteousness i in front of people, to be seen by them. Otherwise, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven. 2 So whenever you give to the poor, don’t sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the * synagogues and on the streets, to be applauded by people. * I assure you: They’ve got their reward! j 3 But when you give to the poor, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. k l
