are 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 the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and
thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the

for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be
called sons of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of
righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you
when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil
against you because of me."
