In the Greek kai, when it is equivalent to "also" or "even," is always placed before the word or phrase which it is intended to emphasize (e.g. Acts 12:3; 1 John 4:21). Matthew 6:14 should therefore read, "Your heavenly Father will forgive you also"; Luke 6:13, "Whom also he named apostles"; Hebrews 8:6, "The mediator of a better covenant also"; and 1 Thessalonians 4:14, `If we believe that Jesus died and rose again, so also (we believe that) those who are fallen asleep in Jesus, God will bring with Him.'
