Padre nostro che sei nei cieli
sia santificato il tuo nome
venga il tuo regno sia fatta la tua volontà come in cielo così in terra.
Dacci oggi il nostro pane quotidiano
Rimetti a noi i nostri debiti Come noi li rimettiamo ai nostri debitori.
E non ci indurre in tentazione Ma liberaci dal male. Amen.
The Italian name for this prayer is "Padre nostro", that means "Father of ours", as the original Latin prayer was usually referred to as "Pater". What follows is a very plain translation of the Italian version into English, verse by verse, trying to keep the 'taste' of the words. As the standard translation is modern, the Italian text has a modern sound, far from the thous and thys of the most common English version.
Father of ours, who are in heaven,
blessed be your name,
may your kingdom come, may your will be fulfilled as in heaven as on earth.
Give us today our daily bread
Clean our debts As we clean the debts of our debtors.
Do not let us slip into temptation But free us from all evil. Amen.
