I am normally on the sidelines but have a question concerning the Model
prayer of the Lord in Matthew 6:13. Is this a substantival adjective use
(tou ponerou, The Evil One) as Wallace refers to on pg. 233? Or, is Robertson
suggestion of the ablative case obscuring the evil one from the the evil thing
 (to poneron)?

Further, what is the implication from this petition in terms of the
tribulation to come or is it simply temporary deliverance from evil while we
sojourn on earth?

Thanks for your help,

In Christ,
