Matthew 6:1

Pure-hearted Giving

6:1 “Be 1  careful not to display your righteousness merely to be seen by people. 2  Otherwise you have no reward with your Father in heaven.

Matthew 6:8

6:8 Do 3  not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

Matthew 6:32

6:32 For the unconverted 4  pursue these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.

1 tc ‡ Several mss (א L Z Θ Ë1 33 892 1241 1424 al) have δέ (de, “but, now”) at the beginning of this verse; the reading without δέ is supported by B D W 0250 Ë13 Ï lat. A decision is difficult, but apparently the conjunction was added by later scribes to indicate a transition in the thought-flow of the Sermon on the Mount. NA27 has δέ in brackets, indicating reservations about its authenticity.

2 tn Grk “before people in order to be seen by them.”

3 tn Grk “So do not.” Here οὖν (oun) has not been translated.

4 tn Or “unbelievers”; Grk “Gentiles.”
