In the Model Prayer, the two phrases “lead us not into temptation” and “deliver us from evil” are not synonymous. Deliver means rescue, generally. One must first be “in evil” to need deliverance “out of evil.”

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” ‭‭(Matthew‬ ‭6:13‬)

God’s Word changes lives.
