The Beatitudes

Matt. 5:1–12

20 Then He lifted up His eyes toward His disciples, and said:

tBlessed are you poor,

For yours is the kingdom of God.

21 uBlessed are you who hunger now,

For you shall be vfilled. 5

wBlessed are you who weep now,

For you shall xlaugh.

22 yBlessed are you when men hate you,

And when they zexclude you,

And revile you, and cast out your name as evil,

For the Son of Man’s sake.

23 aRejoice in that day and leap for joy!

For indeed your reward is great in heaven,

For bin like manner their fathers did to the prophets.

24 But cwoe to you dwho are rich,

For eyou have received your consolation.

25 fWoe to you who are full,

For you shall hunger.

gWoe to you who laugh now,

For you shall mourn and hweep.

26 iWoe 6to you when 7all men speak well of you,

For so did their fathers to the false prophets.

Rules of Kingdom Life

Matt. 5:39–48; 7:1, 2, 12

27 jBut I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 kbless those who curse you, and lpray for those who spitefully use you. 29 mTo him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. nAnd from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30 oGive to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. 31 pAnd just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.

32 qBut if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 rAnd if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. 35 But slove your enemies, tdo good, and ulend, 8hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and vyou will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. 36 wTherefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.
