22 And he spake vnto his disciples, Therefore I say vnto you, Take no thought for your life, what yee shall eate: neither for your body, what yee shall put on. 23 The life is more then meate: and the body more then the raiment. 24 Consider the rauens: for they neither sowe nor reape: which neither haue storehouse nor barne, and yet God feedeth them: how much more are yee better then foules? 25 And which of you with taking thought, can adde to his stature one cubite? 26 If yee then bee not able to doe the least thing, why take yee thought for the remnant? 27 Consider the lilies howe they growe: they labour not, neither spin they: yet I say vnto you, that Salomon himselfe in all his royaltie was not clothed like one of these. 28 If then God so clothe the grasse which is to day in the field, and to morowe is cast into the ouen, howe much more will he clothe you, O yee of litle faith? 29 Therefore aske not what yee shall eate, or what ye shall drinke, neither hag you in suspense. 30 For all such things the people of the world seeke for: and your Father knoweth that ye haue neede of these things. 31 But rather seeke ye after the kingdome of God, and all these things shalbe cast vpon you. 32 Feare not, litle flocke: for it is your Fathers pleasure, to giue you the kingdome. 33 Sell that ye haue, and giue almes: make you bagges, which waxe not old, a treasure that can neuer faile in heauen, where no theefe commeth, neither mothe corrupteth. 34 For where your treasure is, there will your hearts be also.
