Πάτερ ἡμῶν ὁ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς, ἁγιασθήτω τὸ ὄνομά σου,
ἐλθέτω ἡ βασιλεία σου, γενηθήτω τὸ θέλημά σου, ὡς ἐν οὐρανῷ καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς.
Τὸν ἄρτον ἡμῶν τὸν ἐπιούσιον δὸς ἡμῖν σήμερον:
καὶ ἄφες ἡμῖν τὰ ὀφειλήματα ἡμῶν, ὡς καὶ ἡμεῖς ἀφήκαμεν τοῖς ὀφειλέταις ἡμῶν:
καὶ μὴ εἰσενέγκῃς ἡμᾶς εἰς πειρασμόν, ἀλλὰ ῥῦσαι ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ τοῦ πονηροῦ.
Our Father in the heavens, hallowed be the name of yours,
Your Kingdom come, your will be done, as in heaven so on earth.
Our daily bread give us today:
And forgive us of our debts, as we have forgiven our debtors:
And may you lead us not into trial, but deliver us from hardship.
This is my most literal translation of the prayer from Greek, and probably the best translation of it into English. The word “πειρασμός”, so often translated as “temptation” into English, is better translated as trial. Thoughts?
