User-Posted Comments on Luke 11:4


Interesting that the Geneva 1599 of this verse separates the phrases by the use of the colon on three occasions, whereas the KJV uses the semi-colon twice, separating the forgiveness thought from the deliverance thought with a period punctuation. I am investigating a thought, that to the Geneva translators, starting with verse 11:2b, "Thy Kingdom come..." through verse 11:4b, "...but deliver us from evil," is not separate thoughts, but are thoughts that begin from the coming of the Kingdom to deliverance from evil is ONE thought. In verse 2a, "Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name," is the only other complete sentence of the prayer, to me, punctuates the holiness of God and proceeds, thus, to the experience of the man who desires the coming of the Kingdom. However, in Matthew 6:12-13, whether influenced by Estienne or not, it is two verses, without the same punctuation. I find that interesting and I am trying to figure if there is any significance or contrast between the interpretation of Matthew and Luke's gospel accounts.
