5 "And when you pray, you shall not be like the 1 hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 6 "But you, when you pray, c go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you 2 openly.
7 "And when you pray, d do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. e For they think that they will be heard for their many words. 8 "Therefore do not be like them. For your Father f knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.
"In this g manner, therefore, pray:
h Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your i name. 10 Your kingdom come.
j Your will be done
On earth k as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our l daily bread. 12 And m forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors. 13 n And do not lead us into temptation,
But o deliver us from the evil one.
3 For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
14 p "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 "But q if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
