Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.
And He said to His disciples, "For this reason I say to you, do not worry about your life, as to what you will eat; nor for your body, as to what you will put on.
Then turning to his disciples, Jesus said, "So I tell you, don’t worry about everyday life––whether you have enough food to eat or clothes to wear.
He continued this subject with his disciples. "Don't fuss about what's on the table at mealtimes or if the clothes in your closet are in fashion.
And he said to his disciples, For this reason I say to you, Take no thought for your life, about what food you will take, or for your body, how it may be clothed.
He said to his disciples, "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear.
Then He said to His disciples, "Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on.

4 tn Or “do not be anxious.”
