American Standard Bible)

measure, but within the measure of the sphere which God apportioned to us as a
measure, to reach even as far as you. 14 For we are not overextending

Widow’s Two Mites
Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money into the
treasury. And many who were rich put in much. 42 Then one poor widow came and
threw in two mites, which make a quadrans. 43 So He called His disciples to

against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears
you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he will not hear, take with you
one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be
established.’ 17 And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if
he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax

together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
