Led not into temptation: pope approves change to Lord's Prayer

Now Pope Francis has risked the wrath of traditionalists by approving a change to the wording of the Lord’s Prayer. Instead of saying “lead us not into temptation”, it will say “do not let us fall into temptation”.

Is Popey a member of Ratskep?
“And do not put us to the test, but save us from the evil one.” (REB)
“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.”(KJV)

This again is an exhortation from Jesus and is simply rephrased as: ‘Don't be tempted away from the spiritual way of life by the pleasures of material things’.
The REB version implies an external being to whom one makes a request while the KJV appears to describe a behaviour to be observed.
