nor about your body,
τί ἐνδύσησθε
what you will put on.
series
οὐχὶ ἡ ψυχὴ πλεῖόν ἐστιν τῆς τροφῆς καὶ τὸ σῶμα τοῦ ἐνδύματος
Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

ἐμβλέψατε εἰς τὰ πετεινὰ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ὅτι οὐ σπείρουσιν οὐδὲ θερίζουσιν οὐδὲ συνάγουσιν εἰς ἀποθήκας
Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns,
καὶ ὁ πατὴρ ὑμῶν ὁ οὐράνιος τρέφει αὐτά
and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
concessive
οὐχ ὑμεῖς μᾶλλον διαφέρετε αὐτῶν
Are you not of more value than they?
conditional
τίς δὲ ἐξ ὑμῶν μεριμνῶν δύναται προσθεῖναι ἐπὶ τὴν ἡλικίαν αὐτοῦ πῆχυν ἕνα
And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?
καὶ περὶ ἐνδύματος τί μεριμνᾶτε
And why are you anxious about clothing?
καταμάθετε τὰ κρίνα τοῦ ἀγροῦ πῶς αὐξάνουσιν οὐ κοπιῶσιν οὐδὲ νήθουσιν

λέγω δὲ ὑμῖν ὅτι οὐδὲ Σολομὼν ἐν πάσῃ τῇ δόξῃ αὐτοῦ περιεβάλετο ὡς ἓν τούτων
yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
εἰ δὲ τὸν χόρτον τοῦ ἀγροῦ σήμερον ὄντα καὶ αὔριον εἰς κλίβανον βαλλόμενον ὁ θεὸς οὕτως ἀμφιέννυσιν
But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven,
οὐ πολλῷ μᾶλλον ὑμᾶς ὀλιγόπιστοι
will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
alternative
μὴ οὖν μεριμνήσητε
Therefore do not be anxious,
λέγοντες τί φάγωμεν ἤ τί πίωμεν ἤ τί περιβαλώμεθα
saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'
πάντα γὰρ ταῦτα τὰ ἔθνη ἐπιζητοῦσιν
For the Gentiles seek after all these things,
οἶδεν γὰρ ὁ πατὴρ ὑμῶν ὁ οὐράνιος ὅτι χρῄζετε τούτων ἁπάντων
and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.
ζητεῖτε δὲ πρῶτον τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ τὴν δικαιοσύνην αὐτοῦ
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,
καὶ ταῦτα πάντα προστεθήσεται ὑμῖν
and all these things will be added to you.
