so that your charitable giving is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will repay you. Bible see other translations

“repay you.” God promises to repay those who give to the poor and needy: “The one who shows favor to a poor person lends to Yahweh, and he will repay him according to his good work” (Prov. 19:17).

The word “openly,” which occurs in versions such as the King James, was added by scribes to some Greek texts, but it is not in the original text.a
