Matthew 5:3-12

3 Jesus: Blessed are the spiritually poor—the kingdom of heaven is theirs.

4 Blessed are those who mourn—they will be comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek and gentle—they will inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness—they will be filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful—they will be shown mercy.

8 Blessed are those who are pure in heart—they will see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers—they will be called children of God.

10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness—the kingdom of heaven is theirs.

11 And blessed are you, blessed are all of you, when people persecute you or denigrate you or despise you or tell lies about you on My account.

12 But when this happens, rejoice. Be glad. Remember that God’s prophets have been persecuted in the past. And know that in heaven, you have a great reward.
