The Widow's Offering

41 g Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money h into the treasury. And many who were rich put in much. 42 Then one poor widow came and threw in two 1 mites, 2 which make a 3 quadrans. 43 So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you that i this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; 44 "for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, j her whole livelihood."
