> Since the Lord's Prayer comes verbatim from the Bible (Matthew
> 6:9-13)

I should mention that it also appears in a slightly different form in Luke
11:2-4.  I don't know of anyone who uses this later form, but here
are the translations:

KJV (1611):

Luk 11:2 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which
         art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be
         done, as in heaven, so in earth.
Luk 11:3 Give us day by day our daily bread.
Luk 11:4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that
         is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us
         from evil.

RSV (1952):


Luk 11:2 And he said to them, "When you pray, say: "Father, hallowed
         be thy name. Thy kingdom come.
Luk 11:3 Give us each day our daily bread;
Luk 11:4 and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive every
         one who is indebted to us; and lead us not into temptation."

Vulgate (405):


Luk 11:2 et ait illis cum oratis dicite Pater sanctificetur nomen
         tuum adveniat regnum tuum
Luk 11:3 panem nostrum cotidianum da nobis cotidie
Luk 11:4 et dimitte nobis peccata nostra siquidem et ipsi dimittimus
         omni debenti nobis et ne nos inducas in temptationem

And the original:
