when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand
doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in
secret himself shall reward thee openly."

substance is, give alms of it according to thine abundance: if thou have
little, be not afraid to give alms according to that little; for thou layest
up a good treasure for thyself against the day of necessity: because alms
delivereth from death, and suffereth not to come into darkness. Alms is a
good gift in the sight of the Most High for all that give it,"
