"You are the salt of the earth, 1but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet.
2"You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.
3Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so 4that they may see your good works and 5give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
