17 Jesus came down with them and stood on a level place; and there wasa large crowd of His disciples, and a great throng of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon,18 who had come to hear Him and to be healed of their diseases; and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were being cured.19 And all the [a]people were trying to touch Him, for power was coming from Him and healing them all.
20 And turning His gaze toward His disciples, He began to say, “Blessed are[b]you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.21 Blessed are[c]you who hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.22 Blessed are you when men hate you, and ostracize you, and insult you, and scorn your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man.23 Be glad in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For in the same way their fathers used to [d]treat the prophets.24 But woe to you who are rich, for you are receiving your comfort in full.25 Woe to you who [e]are well-fed now, for you shall be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep.26 Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for their fathers used to [f]treat the false prophets in the same way.
