• ( The doxology of the prayer is not contained in Luke's version, nor is it present in the earliest manuscripts of Matthew. The first known use of the doxology, in a less lengthy form ("for yours is the power and the glory forever"),[12] as a conclusion for the Lord's Prayer (in a version slightly different from that of Matthew) is in the Didache, 8:2. There are at least ten different versions of the doxology in early manuscripts of Matthew before it seems to have standardised. Jewish prayers at the time had doxological endings. The doxology may have been originally appended to the Lord's Prayer for use during congregational worship. If so, it could be based on 1 Chronicles 29:11. Most scholars do not consider it part of the original text of Matthew, and modern translations do not include it, mentioning it only in footnotes. Latin Rite Roman Catholics do not use it when reciting the Lord's Prayer, but it has been included as an independent item, not as part of the Lord's Prayer, in the 1970 revision of the Mass. It is attached to the Lord's Prayer in Eastern Christianity (including Byzantine Rite Eastern Catholic Churches) and Protestantism. A minority, generally fundamentalists, posit that the doxology was so important that early manuscripts of Matthew neglected it due to its obviousness,[13] though several other quite obvious things are mentioned in the Gospels.
  • Matthew 6:13
  • catholics take it right out of matthew 6:9-13 i believe in the duay rheims bible - or the old catholic version pretty much. the other stuff they say too actually, but they say it after the priest says something in mass, and then they all finish with that "for thine is...ever and ever. amen" the last part is in some of the bibles, but not in every verse (it's like another part of 6:13) it's in the KJV, not the NIV, or the DRV i guess it depends on the version?
  • I think the Beetles added it in the 60's.
  • It was REMOVED from the prayer before it was put into the Catholic Bible. The Pope didn't think it sounded right in Latin. Heck, I don't Know ,I am an atheist
  • I'm Catholic and at church we say, "For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and forever. Amen." So, I don't know an answer to your question.
  • It was added by a Catholic monk. The oldest texts don't include it at all. And if you look at the notes in the Protestant Bible, they admit it.
