6 Revised Standard Version Passage

5"And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.Teaching about Prayer Mt.6.5-15 (Galilee) | Lk.11.2-4
6But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you. 
7"And in praying do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their many words. 
8Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 
9Pray then like this:
Our Father who art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
10Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
11Give us this day our daily bread; Or: our bread for the morrow
12And forgive us our debts,
As we also have forgiven our debtors;
13And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil Or: the evil one. Other authorities, some ancient, add, in some form: For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, for ever. Amen.
14For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father also will forgive you; 
15but if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
