Matthew 6:16-18 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Fasting; The True Treasure; Wealth (Mammon)

16 Whenever you fast, do not put on a gloomy face as the hypocrites do, for they [a]neglect their appearance so that they will be noticed by men when they are fasting. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. 17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face 18 so that your fasting will not be noticed by men, but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

Matthew 6:16-18 Amplified Bible (AMP)

Fasting, The True Treasure, Wealth (Mammon)

16 “And whenever you are fasting, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they put on a sad and dismal face [like actors, discoloring their faces with ashes or dirt] so that their fasting may be seen by men. I assure you and most solemnly say to you, they [already] have their reward in full. 17 But when you fast, put oil on your head [as you normally would to groom your hair] and wash your face 18 so that your fasting will not be noticed by people, but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees [what is done] in secret will reward you.

Matthew 6:16-18 The Message (MSG)

16-18 “When you practice some appetite-denying discipline to better concentrate on God, don’t make a production out of it. It might turn you into a small-time celebrity but it won’t make you a saint. If you ‘go into training’ inwardly, act normal outwardly. Shampoo and comb your hair, brush your teeth, wash your face. God doesn’t require attention-getting devices. He won’t overlook what you are doing; he’ll reward you well.

Mateo 6:16-18 Magandang Balita Biblia (MBBTAG)

Katuruan tungkol sa Pag-aayuno

16 “Kapag kayo'y nag-aayuno, huwag kayong magmukhang malungkot tulad ng mga mapagkunwari. Hindi sila nag-aayos ng sarili upang mapansin ng mga tao na sila'y nag-aayuno. Tandaan ninyo: tinanggap na nila ang kanilang gantimpala. 17 Sa halip, kapag nag-aayuno ka, maghilamos ka, lagyan mo ng langis at ayusin mo ang iyong buhok 18 upang huwag mapansin ng mga tao na ikaw ay nag-aayuno. Ang iyong Ama na hindi mo nakikita ang tanging makakaalam nito. Siya, na nakakakita ng ginagawa mo nang lihim, ang siyang magbibigay ng gantimpala sa iyo.”
