While the etymological derivation may remain for years to come a matter of controversy, it is certain that ὲπιούσιος; does not denote a bread extraordinarily given. And thus we arrive at the old, familiar translation "daily." It is not a farfetched recommendation to pray the Matthew version in the morning devotion and the Luke version in the evening. However, we cannot pass on every occasion of prayer through the painful choice of the version to be used, for the day would end without our partaking of food.
