ENGLISH: Murdock’s Syriac Peshitta Bible NT

Matthew 5:3-12

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit for the kingdom of heaven is theirs!

4 Blessed are the mourners: for they shall be comforted!

5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth!

6 Blessed are they that hunger and thirst for righteousness: for they shall be satiated!

7 Blessed are the merciful: for on them shall be mercies!

8 Blessed are the clean in heart: for they shall behold God!

9 Blessed are the cultivators of peace: for they shall be called sons of God!

10 Blessed are they that are persecuted on account of righteousness: for the kingdom of heaven is theirs!

11 Blessed are ye, when they revile you and persecute you, and speak every evil thing against you, falsely, on my account.

12 At that time, rejoice and be glad: for your reward in heaven is great. For so they persecuted the prophets that were before you.
