Bible Quote 5:1 Now when he saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him,
5:2 and he began to teach them saying:
5:3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
5:5 Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
5:7 Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.
5:10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

5:11 "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
5:12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
