Luke 6:22-23 King James Version (KJV)

22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.

Luke 6:22-23 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

22 Blessed (happy—[a]with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, apart from your outward condition—and [b]to be envied) are you when people despise (hate) you, and when they exclude and excommunicate you [as disreputable] and revile and denounce you and defame and cast out and spurn your name as evil (wicked) on account of the Son of Man.

23 Rejoice and be glad at such a time and exult and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is rich and great and strong and intense and abundant in heaven; for even so their forefathers treated the prophets.

Luke 6:22-23 Living Bible (TLB)

22 What happiness it is when others hate you and exclude you and insult you and smear your name because you are mine![a] 23 When that happens, rejoice! Yes, leap for joy! For you will have a great reward awaiting you in heaven. And you will be in good company—the ancient prophets were treated that way too!


  1. Luke 6:22 because you are mine, literally, “on account of the Son of Man.”
