New Living Translation
Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help.
King James Bible
Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
Darby Bible Translation

For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.
I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.'
John replied, "If you have two shirts, give one to the poor. If you have food, share it with those who are hungry."
"By chance a priest came along. But when he saw the man lying there, he crossed to the other side of the road and passed him by.
A Temple assistant walked over and looked at him lying there, but he also passed by on the other side.
Don't forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!
"If you see your neighbor's ox or sheep or goat wandering away, don't ignore your responsibility. Take it back to its owner.
