Matthew 5:1-12Ā English Standard Version (ESV)

Seeing the crowds,Ā he went up on the mountain, and when heĀ sat down, his disciples came to him.

AndĀ he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:

ā€œBlessed areĀ the poor in spirit, forĀ theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

ā€œBlessed areĀ those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

ā€œBlessed are theĀ meek, for theyĀ shall inherit the earth.

ā€œBlessed are those who hunger andĀ thirstĀ for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

ā€œBlessed areĀ the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.

ā€œBlessed areĀ the pure in heart, forĀ they shall see God.

ā€œBlessed areĀ the peacemakers, forĀ they shall be calledĀ sonsĀ of God.

ā€œBlessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, forĀ theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

ā€œBlessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falselyĀ on my account.Ā Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, forĀ so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
