Blessings and Woes
20 Then he looked up at his disciples and said:
“Blessed are you who are poor,
for yours is the kingdom of God.
21 “Blessed are you who are hungry now,
for you will be filled.
“Blessed are you who weep now,
for you will laugh.(A)
22 “Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you[a] on account of the Son of Man.(B) 23 Rejoice on that day and leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven, for that is how their ancestors treated the prophets.(C)
26 “Woe to you when all speak well of you, for that is how their ancestors treated the false prophets.(F)
