“Be not yee therefore like vnto them: For your father knoweth what things yee haue neede of, before yee aske him.”
King James Version (KJV)
5. ¶ And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they loue to pray standing in the Synagogues, and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seene of men. Uerily I say vnto you, they haue their reward. 6. But thou when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy doore, pray to thy father which is in secret, and thy father which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly. 7. But when yee pray, vse not vaine repetitions, as the heathen doe. For they thinke that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8. Be not yee therefore like vnto them: For your father knoweth what things yee haue neede of, before yee aske him. 9. After this maner therefore pray yee: Our father which art in heauen, hallowed be thy name. 10. Thy kingdome come. Thy will be done, in earth, as it is in heauen. 11. Giue vs this day our daily bread.
