ENGLISH: Etheridge, Peschito Syriac Bible NT

Matthew 5:3-12

3 BLESSED (are) the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 Blessed the mourners, for they shall be comforted.

5 Blessed the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

6 Blessed they who hunger and thirst unto righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

7 Blessed the merciful, for upon them shall be mercy.

8 Blessed they who are pure in their hearts, for they shall see Aloha.

9 Blessed the makers of peace, for the children of Aloha shall they be called.

10 Blessed they who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are you when they treat you with reviling, and persecute you, and say concerning you every evil word, for my sake, in falsity.

12 Then be glad and exult, for your reward is great in heaven; for so persecuted they the prophets who were before you.
