"Do people get out the lamp," he said to them, "and then put it under the peck-measure, or under the bed, instead of putting it up where it belongs? For no one hides anything except for the purpose of sometime bringing it to light again, and people keep things secret only to reveal them some day.

"Nobody lights a lamp and then covers it with a dish or puts it under a bed, but he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that shall not be disclosed, nor kept secret that shall not be known and come to light. So take care how you listen. For people who have will have more given to them, and from people who have nothing, even what they think they have will be taken away."

There is nothing covered up that is not going to be uncovered, nor secret that is not going to be known. For what you say in the darkness will be heard in the light, and what you whisper in someone's ear, behind closed doors, will be proclaimed from the housetops.
