In vv. 16-18, Jesus offers a third application of Matt 6:1, "Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven." He applied this guiding principle to giving alms (vv. 2-4) and to prayer (vv. 5-6) and after a lengthy excursus on prayer and forgiveness in vv. 7-15, he now turns to the subject of fasting. He begins in v. 16 with a negative command ("Do not be like the hypocrites..."), grounded on the fact that they have their reward not from the Father but only from men. In contrast, Jesus exhorts believers in vv. 17-18 to fast privately for the Father's audience alone, because this type of fasting is rewarded by the Father.
