40.  That we must not labour noisily nor boastfully.

In the Gospel according to Matthew:  “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, shall render to thee.”44084408    Matt. vi. 3, 4. Also in the same place:  “When thou doest an alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the streets and in the synagogues, that they may be glorified of men. Verily I say unto you, They have fulfilled their reward.”44094409    Matt. vi. 2.
