Question 126: What is the fifth petition?

Answer: And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. That is: be pleased, for the sake of Christ's blood, not to impute to us, miserable sinners, any of our transgressions, nor that evil, which always cleaves to us1; as we also find this witness of Thy grace in us that it is our full purpose heartily to forgive our neighbor2.

1Psa. 51:1 "Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of Thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions."

Psa. 143:2, And enter not into judgment with thy servant: for in thy sight shall no man living be justified.

John 2:1, 2 "My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: and He is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world."

Rom. 8:1, [There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

2Matt. 6:14, 15 "For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: but if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses."
