To him who begs, give; from him who wishes to borrow of you, do not turn away.
Let each give as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly nor of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver.
To every one who asks, give, and from him who takes your things, do not ask them back.
2 When you give gifts of mercy, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, in order that they may be honored by men. I assure you they get their payment in full.
3 But you, when you are giving a gift of mercy, must not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,
4 so that your gift may be in secret, and your Father, who sees in secret, will repay you.
The King will answer, 'I tell you truly, inasmuch as you did it to one of these my brothers \'97 even the least \'97 you did it to me.'
If then you, evil though you are, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Heavenly Father give a holy spirit to those who ask him."
Give and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed in, shaken down, and running over they will pour into your lap. For with the measure that you measure with will the return to you be measured."
15 If a brother or sister is naked and lacks food for the day
16 and one of you says to them, "Go in peace, be warmed and fed," but you do not give them what the body needs, what is the good of it?
17 Just so faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.
If any one of you is lacking in wisdom, let him ask it from God, who gives to all freely without reproaching, and it will be given to him.
He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and make abundant your seed and will increase the fruits of your righteousness.
You will be enriched in everything so that you will have all liberality which through our agency causes thanksgiving to God.
For if there is first the readiness, a gift is acceptable according to what a man has, not according to what he has not.
6 Remember this, he who sows sparingly will reap sparingly and he who sows bountifully will reap bountifully.
7 Let each give as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly nor of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver.
8 God is able to make every blessing abound for you so that having in everything always all that you need, you may abound in every good work,
9 as it is written, "He scattered, he gave to the poor, his righteousness endures forever."
10 He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and make abundant your seed and will increase the fruits of your righteousness.
11 You will be enriched in everything so that you will have all liberality which through our agency causes thanksgiving to God.
12 For the performance of this sacred service not only supplies the needs of the holy, but also overflows to God in many thanksgivings.
