Q&A

Most Bible translations use the word "debts" in the Lord’s Prayer, so why do we say "forgive us our trespasses"?

Question:

In every Bible I have read, both Catholic and Protestant, Matthew 6:9-14 and Luke 11:2–4 use the words &quot;debts&quot; and &quot;sins&quot; in the Lord&#039;s Prayer, and yet as Catholics we say &quot;trespasses&quot; when praying this important prayer. Who changed the words and why?
