(1) Thom 6:2+3b

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." [Complete Gospels]

“[ἐξ]ετάζουσιν αὐτὸν ο[ἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ λέ]γουσιν· πῶς νηστεύ[σομεν, καὶ πῶς προσευξό]μεθα, καὶ πῶς [ἐλεημοσύνην ποιήσομεν κ]αὶ τὶ παρατηρήσ[ομεν περὶ τῶν βρωμάτω]ν· λέγει Ἰη(σοῦ)ς· [μὴ ψεύδεσθε καὶ ὅτι μισ]εῖται, μὴ ποιεῖτ[ε· πάντα γὰρ ἐνώπιον τ]ῆς ἀληθ[ε]ίας ἀν[αφαίνεται. οὐδὲν γάρ ἐστίν ἀ[π]οκεκρ[υμμένον ὃ οὐ φανερὸν ἔσται].” (Thomas 1:6 AGOSP-T)
