The Truth... What is it?





The Lord's Prayer from Matthew


Verse: Matthew 6:9-13.

King James Version...KJV...Bible of 1611
9 "After this manner therefore pray ye: 'Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. '"

New American Standard Version...NASV/NASB...Bible
9 "Pray, then, in this way: 'Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day [our daily bread]1.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from [evil] 2.
[For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever] 3. Amen.'"

superscripts:

 [1] Or "our bread for tomorrow".
 [2] "Or the evil one".
 [3] This clause not found in early manuscripts.

 

New International Version...NIV...Bible
9 "This, then, is how you should pray: 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from [the evil one]1.' "

superscripts:

[1]13 Or "from evil"; some late manuscripts "...one, for yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. "

 

COMMENT: Why would translators omit the affirming point of the last of verse 13? What could be the point in the omission?
