Do Merciful Deeds in Secret

Mt6:1Προσέχετε { τὴν ἐλεημοσύνην ♦ [δὲ] τὴν δικαιοσύνην } ὑμῶν μὴ ποιεῖν ἔμπροσθεν τῶν ἀνθρώπων, πρὸς τὸ θεαθῆναι αὐτοῖς· εἰ δὲ { μήγε ♦ μή γε }, μισθὸν οὐκ ἔχετε παρὰ τῷ πατρὶ ὑμῶν τῷ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς.

Mt6:1“Be careful that you don’t do your charitable giving before men, to be seen by them, or else you have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.
Mt6:2¶Ὅταν οὖν ποιῇς ἐλεημοσύνην, μὴ σαλπίσῃς ἔμπροσθέν σου, ὥσπερ οἱ ὑποκριταὶ ποιοῦσιν ἐν ταῖς συναγωγαῖς καὶ ἐν ταῖς ῥύμαις, ὅπως δοξασθῶσιν ὑπὸ τῶν ἀνθρώπων· ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ἀπέχουσιν τὸν μισθὸν αὐτῶν.Mt6:2Therefore when you do merciful deeds, don’t sound a trumpet before yourself, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may get glory from men. Most certainly I tell you, they have received their reward.
Mt6:3Σοῦ δὲ ποιοῦντος ἐλεημοσύνην, μὴ γνώτω ἡ ἀριστερά σου τί ποιεῖ ἡ δεξιά σου,Mt6:3But when you do merciful deeds, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand does,
Mt6:4ὅπως ᾖ σου ἡ ἐλεημοσύνη ἐν τῷ κρυπτῷ· καὶ ὁ πατήρ σου ὁ βλέπων ἐν τῷ κρυπτῷ { αὐτὸς ♦ - } ἀποδώσει σοι { ἐν τῷ φανερῷ ♦ - }.

Mt6:5“When you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most certainly, I tell you, they have received their reward.
Mt6:6Σὺ δέ, ὅταν προσεύχῃ, εἴσελθε εἰς τὸ { ταμιεῖόν ♦ ταμεῖόν } σου, καὶ κλείσας τὴν θύραν σου, πρόσευξαι τῷ πατρί σου τῷ ἐν τῷ κρυπτῷ· καὶ ὁ πατήρ σου ὁ βλέπων ἐν τῷ κρυπτῷ ἀποδώσει σοι { ἐν τῷ φανερῷ ♦ - }.

———
RP: βαττολογήσητε ♦ NA/UBS: βατταλογήσητε
Mt6:7In praying, don’t use vain repetitions do not babble, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speaking wordiness.
Mt6:8Μὴ οὖν ὁμοιωθῆτε αὐτοῖς· οἶδεν γὰρ ὁ πατὴρ ὑμῶν ὧν χρείαν ἔχετε, πρὸ τοῦ ὑμᾶς αἰτῆσαι αὐτόν.Mt6:8Therefore don’t be like them, for your Father knows what things you need, before you ask him.

a Sandwiched between 6:19-20 and 6:24, the eye here could represent covetousness, filling the body with greed.
Lk11:34The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore when your eye is good, your whole body is also full of light; but when it is evil, your body also is full of darkness.
Lk11:35Σκόπει οὖν μὴ τὸ φῶς τὸ ἐν σοὶ σκότος ἐστίν.Lk11:35Therefore see whether the light that is in you isn’t darkness.

———
a Gk. ἐπαινέω, to praise.
b Gk. τῆς ἀδικίας, of the wrongdoing. This is usually translated as an adjective modifying τὸν οἰκονόμον, e.g., the dishonest manager, instead of as a genitive noun. However, see Smyth 1405: With verbs of emotion the genitive denotes the cause. ...τὸν ξένον δίκαιον αἰνέσαι προθῡμίᾱς it is right to praise the stranger for his zeal...
c Is this: The children of this age demonstrate more drive for the things of this age than do the children of the light for the things of the light?

Lk16:9I tell say to you also, make for yourselves friends by means of unrighteous from the mammon of wrongdoing,[a][b] so that when you fail, they may receive you into the eternal tents.[c]
———
a Gk. ἐκ τοῦ μαμωνᾶ τῆς ἀδικίας. Ἀδικία, wrongdoing, is usually translated here (and in 16:8) as an adjective, like ἄδικος in 16:11, e.g., the unrighteous mammon, instead of as a genitive noun.
b The meaning of "make friends from the mammon of wrongdoing [or unrighteousness]" must equate to the admonition in 16:11 to be trustworthy with unrighteous mammon.
c Can this be a question, i.e.: Do you make friends for yourselves from the mammon of wrongdoing/unrighteousness, so that when you fail they may receive you into the eternal tents?
Lk16:10Ὁ πιστὸς ἐν ἐλαχίστῳ καὶ ἐν πολλῷ πιστός ἐστιν, καὶ ὁ ἐν ἐλαχίστῳ ἄδικος καὶ ἐν πολλῷ ἄδικός ἐστιν.Lk16:10He The one who is faithful trustworthy in a very little is faithful also trustworthy in much., He and the one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.
Lk16:11Εἰ οὖν ἐν τῷ ἀδίκῳ μαμωνᾷ πιστοὶ οὐκ ἐγένεσθε, τὸ ἀληθινὸν τίς ὑμῖν πιστεύσει;Lk16:11If therefore you have not been faithful trustworthy in the unrighteous mammon,[a] who will commit to your entrust to you the true[a] riches?[b]
———
a Gk. τῷ ἀδίῳ μαμωνᾷ; in contrast to ἀδικία in 16:11, ἄδικοςis truly an adjective.
b That is, the righteous mammon.
c That mammon may be unrighteous is not justification to handle it dishonestly.
Lk16:12Καὶ εἰ ἐν τῷ ἀλλοτρίῳ πιστοὶ οὐκ ἐγένεσθε, τὸ ὑμέτερον τίς ὑμῖν δώσει;Lk16:12If you have not been faithful trustworthy in that which is (what belongs to) another’s, who will give you that which what is your own?[a]
———
a That is, who will be trustworthy toward you in return with what is yours?
Mt6:24Οὐδεὶς δύναται { δυσὶν ♦ δυσὶ } κυρίοις δουλεύειν· ἢ γὰρ τὸν ἕνα μισήσει, καὶ τὸν ἕτερον ἀγαπήσει· ἢ ἑνὸς ἀνθέξεται, καὶ τοῦ ἑτέρου καταφρονήσει. Οὐ δύνασθε θεῷ δουλεύειν καὶ μαμωνᾷ.
