      You're right, George, but Biblical texts preserve many ancient
      features (consider the English "who _art_ in Heaven," etc.), so the
      prayer is actually _Otc~e na's~_ in Slovak, too, although that is not
      how Slovaks would address their own fathers. Note also the
      old-fashioned placement of the adjective "ours" after the noun
      "Father," not before it as is common today.
