Matthew 6:19-34 Darby’s Translation

Treasure in Heaven

19  Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust spoils, and where thieves dig through and steal; 20  but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust spoils, and where thieves do not dig through nor steal; 21  for where thy treasure is, there will be also thy heart.

The Light of the Body

22  The lamp of the body is the eye; if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body will be light: 23  but if thine eye be wicked, thy whole body will be dark. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great the darkness!

God and Mammon

24  No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and will love the other, or he will hold to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Care and Anxiety

25  For this cause I say unto you, Do not be careful about your life, what ye should eat and what ye should drink; nor for your body what ye should put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body than raiment? 26  Look at the birds of the heaven, that they sow not, nor reap, nor gather into granaries, and your heavenly Father nourishes them. Are ye not much more excellent than they? 27  But which of you by carefulness can add to his growth one cubit? 28  And why are ye careful about clothing? Observe with attention the lilies of the field, how they grow: they toil not, neither do they spin; 29  but I say unto you, that not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed as one of these. 30  But if God so clothe the herbage of the field, which is to-day, and to-morrow is cast into [the] oven, will he not much rather you, O [ye] of little faith? 31  Be not therefore careful, saying, What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or What shall we put on? 32  for all these things the nations seek after; for your heavenly Father knows that ye have need of all these things. 33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. 34  Be not careful therefore for the morrow, for the morrow shall be careful about itself. Sufficient to the day [is] its own evil.
