The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name;

thy kingdom come;

thy will be done;

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation;

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,

the power and the glory,

for ever and ever.

  1. This is the version that I grew up with and have always liked. Some churches use slightly different versions like debtors instead of trespassers. I’ve learned to be cautious during certain parts of the prayer until I see how that particular church phrases things.

  2. KJV – “…forgive us our debts (G3783) as we forgive our debtors (G3781)…” (Matt. 6:12)
    *G3783 – ὀφείλημα
    something owed, i.e. (figuratively) a due; morally, a fault
    Derivation: from (the alternate of) G3784;
    KJV Usage: debt.
    *G3781 – ὀφειλέτης
    an ower, i.e. person indebted; figuratively, a delinquent; morally, a transgressor (against God)
    Derivation: from G3784;
    KJV Usage: debtor, which owed, sinner.
    **G3784 – ὀφείλω
    , or (in certain tenses), its prolonged form ὀφειλέω to owe (pecuniarily); figuratively, to be under obligation (ought, must, should); morally, to fail in duty
    Derivation: probably from the base of G3786 (through the idea of accruing);
    KJV Usage: behove, be bound, (be) debt(-or), (be) due(-ty), be guilty (indebted), (must) need(-s), ought, owe, should.
