5 “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love xto stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. yTruly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 6 But when you pray, zgo into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. aAnd your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
7 “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as bthe Gentiles do, for cthey think that they will be heard dfor their many words. 8 Do not be like them, efor your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 9 fPray then like this:
g“Our Father in heaven,
10 jYour kingdom come,
lon earth as it is in heaven.
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And olead us not into temptation,
Or Let your name be kept holy, or Let your name be treated with reverence
Or Let your kingdom come, let your will be done
Or our bread for tomorrow
Or the evil one; some manuscripts add For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen
