/6/ His disciples asked him and said to him, "Do you want us to fast? How should we pray? Should we give to charity? What diet should we observe?" /2/Jesus said, "Don't lie, /3/ and don't do what you hate, /4/ because all things are disclosed before heaven. /5/ After all, there is nothing hidden that won't be revealed, /6/ and there is nothing covered up that will remain undisclosed."
