2 aHe opened His mouth and began to teach them, saying,
4 “Blessed are athose who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
6 “Blessed are athose who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
7 “Blessed are athe merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for athey shall be called sons of God.
11 “Blessed are you when people ainsult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.
12 “Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for ain the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
17 “Do not think that I came to abolish the aLaw or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill.
19 “Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches 1others to do the same, shall be called least ain the kingdom of heaven; but whoever 2keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 “For I say to you that unless your arighteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
22 “But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be 1guilty before athe court; and whoever says to his brother, ‘2You good-for-nothing,’ shall be 1guilty before 3bthe supreme court; and whoever says, ‘You fool,’ shall be 1guilty enough to go into the 4cfiery hell.
25 “aMake friends quickly with your opponent at law while you are with him on the way, so that your opponent may not hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the officer, and you be thrown into prison.
28 but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman awith lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
31 “It was said, ‘aWhoever sends his wife away, let him give her a certificate of divorce’;
39 “But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but awhoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.
41 “Whoever 1forces you to go one mile, go with him two.
42 “aGive to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.
44 “But I say to you, alove your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
46 “For aif you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
