New International Version
5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing(B) in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father,(C) who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling(D) like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.(E) 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need(F) before you ask him.
9 “This, then, is how you should pray:
“‘Our Father(G) in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom(H) come,
your will be done,(I)
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.(J)
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.(K)
13 And lead us not into temptation,[a](L)
but deliver us from the evil one.[b]’(M)
English Standard Version
The Lord's Prayer
5 “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love (A)to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. (B)Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 6 But when you pray, (C)go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. (D)And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
7 “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as (E)the Gentiles do, for (F)they think that they will be heard (G)for their many words. 8 Do not be like them, (H)for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 9 (I)Pray then like this:
(J)“Our Father in heaven,
(K)hallowed be (L)your name.[a]
10 (M)Your kingdom come,
(N)your will be done,[b]
(O)on earth as it is in heaven.
11 (P)Give us (Q)this day our daily bread,[c]
12 and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And (R)lead us not into temptation,
but (S)deliver us from (T)evil.[d]
14 (U)For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, 15 (V)but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.Read full chapter
