Trespassing, in Biblical terms

trespass Biblical experience

Trespass… (Noun and Verb) from the Greek paraptoma : primarily “a false step, a blunder” (akin to parapipto, “to fall away,” Heb 6:6), literally: “a fall beside,” used ethically, denotes “a trespass,” a deviation, from uprightness and truth.


The Lord’s Prayer  (traditional)

  Our Father, which art in heaven,

  Hallowed be thy Name.

  Thy Kingdom come.

  Thy will be done in earth,

  As it is in heaven.

  Give us this day our daily bread.

  And forgive us our trespasses,

  As we forgive them that trespass against us.

  And lead us not into temptation,

  But deliver us from evil.

  For thine is the kingdom,

  The power, and the glory,

  For ever and ever. Amen.

        (From the Anglican Book of Common Prayer, 1662).
