16 Let your light thus shine before men, so that they may see your upright works, and glorify your Father who is in the heavens.

References for Matthew 5:16

    • e 5:16 - I do not put 'good works,' because it has acquired the force of benevolent actions, which is not the force here, but all that is upright and honourable and comely, what ought to be in one who feels aright. 'Upright' does not quite give the whole sense: see 'good work,' Mark 14.6; Titus 2.14.
