When Jesus saw the crowds he walked up the mountains and sat down.
Then he began to speak and taught them saying:
"Blessed are for the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted"
"Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit earth." "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled"
"Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy" "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see god"
"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God" "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." "Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely[b] on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."
