13  "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt becomes tasteless, with what shall it be salted? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and to be trampled underfoot by men.

13  You are indeed the salt of the earth; but if the salt should lose its savor, with what could it be salted? It would not be worth anything, but to be thrown outside and to be trodden down by men.

13  Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

14  You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

14  You are indeed the light of the world; a city that is built upon a mountain cannot be hidden.

15  Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it shines on everything in the house.

15  Neither do [men] light a lamp, and put it under the bushel, but on the stand; and it shineth unto all that are in the house.

15  And they do not light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, so that it may shine to all who are in the house.

16  Thus let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works, and they may glorify your Father who is in heaven.

16  Even so let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

16  So then, let your light shine in the sight of men, so that they may see your good works, and may glorify your Father, who is in heaven.
