    Matthew 6:1-6  Amplified Bible (AMP)

    Giving to the Poor and Prayer

    6 “Be [very] careful not to do your [a]good deeds publicly, to be seen by men;
     otherwise you will have no reward [prepared and awaiting you] with your Father who is in heaven.

    “So whenever you give to the poor and do acts of kindness, do not blow a trumpet before you [to advertise it],
    as the hypocrites do [like actors acting out a role] in the synagogues and in the streets,
    so that they may be honored and recognized and praised by men.
     I assure you and most solemnly say to you, they [already] have their reward in full.

     But when you give to the poor and do acts of kindness, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing [give in complete secrecy],

    so that your charitable acts will be done in secret; and your Father who sees [what is done] in secret will reward you.

    “Also, when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites; for they love to pray [publicly] standing in the synagogues
    and on the corners of the streets so that they may be seen by men. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, they [already] have their reward in full.

     But when you pray, go into your most private room, close the door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and
    your Father who sees [what is done] in secret will reward you.
