What-da? Do Frank writers (all Anglo-catholics like their mentor Conrad Black, know that we don’t know the King James bible (or the Douai ) very well.

A star witness of the Mike Duffy trial cited a Bible passage to explain a “for you only” comment he made in an email about who paid the embattled senator’s bills.
“Yes, my view, I think I mentioned yesterday, my view is it was I was helping out, I was doing a good deed and sort of Matthew 6, right?” said Nigel Wright to an Ottawa courtroom on Thursday. “This is, you should do these things quietly and not let your left hand know what the right hand is doing.”
Different versions of the Bible print various iterations of the verse Wright cited.
Here’s how Matthew 6:3 appears in the New International Version:
Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
Well, it’s all gone over my head. I just thought it was a joke.
