12 Forgive us the wrongs we have done[a] as we ourselves
    release forgiveness to those who have wronged us.
13 Rescue us every time we face tribulation[b]
    and set us free from evil.[c]
    For you are the King who rules
    with power and glory forever. Amen.’[d]

14 And when you pray, make sure you forgive the faults of others so that your Father in heaven will also forgive you.
