3 Blessed are the poor in spirit! For theirs is the kingdom of the Heavens.

4 Blessed are they who mourn! For they shall be comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek! For they shall inherit the earth. 

6 Blessed are they who hunger and thirst after righteousness! For they shall be filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful! For they shall obtain mercy.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart! For they shall see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers! For they shall be called sons of God.

10 Blessed are they who have been persecuted for righteousness’ sake! For theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.

11 Blessed are you when they shall reproach you, and persecute you , and shall say every evil word against you, lying, on account of Me.

12 Rejoice and leap for joy, for your reward is great in Heaven; for in this way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
