Original text and translations
Behold the birds of the heaven,
that they sow not, neither do they reap,
nor gather into barns;
and your heavenly Father feedeth them.
Are not ye of much more value than they?
Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow;
they toil not, neither do they spin:
yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed like one of these.
your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
But seek ye first his kingdom, and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you.
