AMPCAmplified Bible, Classic Edition
7 And when you pray, do not heap up phrases (multiply words, repeating the same ones over and over) as the Gentiles do, for they think they will be heard for their much speaking. [I Kings 18:25-29.]
8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
