dā´li : This word, coming as it does from the Hebrew יום , yōm "day," and the Greek ἡμέρα , hēméra , suggests either day by day (Exodus 5:13 ), that which is prepared for one daily (Nehemiah 5:18 ), as e.g. our "daily bread," meaning bread sufficient for that day (Matthew 6:11 ); or day by day continuously, one day after another in succession, as "the daily burnt offering" (Numbers 29:6 the King James Version), "daily ministration" ( Acts 6:1 ), and "daily in the temple" (Acts 5:42 the King James Version). The meaning of the word "daily" as used in the Lord's Prayer ( Matthew 6:11 ) seems to indicate sufficient for our need, whether we consider that need as a day at a time, or day after day as we are permitted to live. "Give us bread sufficient for our sustenance."
