5My son, be mindful of the Lord our God all thy days, and let not thy will be set to sin, or to transgress his commandments: do uprightly all thy life long, and follow not the ways of unrighteousness. 6For if thou deal truly, thy doings shall prosperously succeed to thee, and to all them that live justly. 7Give alms of thy substance; and when thou givest alms, let not thine eye be envious, neither turn thy face from any poor, and the face of God shall not be turned away from thee. 8If thou hast abundance give alms accordingly: if thou have but a little, be not afraid to give according to that little:9For thou layest up a good treasure for thyself against the day of necessity. 10Because that alms do deliver from death, and suffereth not to come into darkness. 11For alms is a good gift unto all that give it in the sight of the most High.
