ESV 3 Give us each day our daily bread, NIV 3 Give us each day our daily bread. ESV 4 and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation." NIV 4 Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation. ' " ESV 5 And he said to them, "Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves, NIV 5 Then he said to them, "Suppose one of you has a friend, and he goes to him at midnight and says, 'Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, ESV 6 for a friend of mine has arrived on a journey, and I have nothing to set before him'; NIV 6 because a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have nothing to set before him.' ESV 7 and he will answer from within, 'Do not bother me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed. I cannot get up and give you anything'? NIV 7 "Then the one inside answers, 'Don't bother me. The door is already locked, and my children are with me in bed. I can't get up and give you anything.'

NIV 8 I tell you, though he will not get up and give him the bread because he is his friend, yet because of the man's boldness he will get up and give him as much as he needs. ESV 9 And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. NIV 9 "So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

ESV 13 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!" NIV 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!"

ESV 18 And if Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? For you say that I cast out demons by Beelzebul. NIV 18 If Satan is divided against himself, how can his kingdom stand? I say this because you claim that I drive out demons by Beelzebub. ESV 19 And if I cast out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. NIV 19 Now if I drive out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your followers drive them out? So then, they will be your judges.

ESV 25 And when it comes, it finds the house swept and put in order. NIV 25 When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order.
