Matthew 5: 13 — 16

Ordinary 5     Year A

 New American Bible

 

13     11  12 You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

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

15     Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.

16     Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.

 

 
11 [13-16] By their deeds the disciples are to influence the world for good. They can no more escape notice than a city set on a mountain. If they fail in good works, they are as useless as flavorless salt or as a lamp whose light is concealed.

12 [13] The unusual supposition of salt losing its flavor has led some to suppose that the saying refers to the salt of the Dead Sea that, because chemically impure, could lose its taste.
