A Lamp Under a Jar
k "No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts it under a bed, but sets it on a lampstand, that those who enter may see the l light.
m "For nothing is secret that will not be n revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.
"Therefore take heed how you hear. o For whoever has, to him more will be given; and whoever does not have, even what he seems to p have will be taken from him."

Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
Also He said to them, "Is a lamp brought to be put under a basket or under a bed? Is it not to be set on a lampstand?
No one, when he has lit a lamp, puts it in a secret place or under a basket, but on a lampstand, that those who come in may see the light.
You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.
For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known.
1 Corinthians 4:5
Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one's praise will come from God.
For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil.
2 Corinthians 5:10
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.
For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.
