I'm searching for a certain Bible verse can you please help?

Asked by auhsojsa (2516points) February 3rd, 2012

I can’t remember where in the Bible I’ve read that. Can you help me locate it? Thanks!
Something along the lines of, “You shouldn’t shout the lords name or try and preach the gospel on the corner of the streets, this is not the way to preach the word of God.”?

Matthew 6:5
And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full

That’s the New International Version. Here’s a link which lets you compare many others:

Glad someone with some actual knowledge was here. My guess was gonna be: “Hey! You kids, get off my lawn or so help me God I will call your parents!”

But I couldn’t find that in the KJV.

Yes, “So help me God…!” told us the adults were REALLY MAD and you better shape up. Or, as my dad would say, “I’ll beat ya s’verly ‘bout the head and shoulders.” It was a Texas thing.
