The Twelve Apostles(A)

12 Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in (B)prayer to God. 13 And when it was day, He called His disciples to Himself; (C)and from them He chose (D)twelve whom He also named apostles: 14 Simon, (E)whom He also named Peter, and Andrew his brother; James and John; Philip and Bartholomew; 15 Matthew and Thomas; James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called the Zealot; 16 Judas (F)the son of James, and (G)Judas Iscariot who also became a traitor.

Jesus Heals a Great Multitude(H)

17 And He came down with them and stood on a level place with a crowd of His disciples (I)and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem, and from the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear Him and be healed of their diseases, 18 as well as those who were tormented with unclean spirits. And they were healed. 19 And the whole multitude (J)sought to (K)touch Him, for (L)power went out from Him and healed them all.

The Beatitudes(M)

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

(N)“Blessed are you poor,
For yours is the kingdom of God.
21 (O)Blessed are you who hunger now,
For you shall be (P)filled.[a]
(Q)Blessed are you who weep now,
For you shall (R)laugh.
22 (S)Blessed are you when men hate you,
And when they (T)exclude you,
And revile you, and cast out your name as evil,
For the Son of Man’s sake.
23 (U)Rejoice in that day and leap for joy!
For indeed your reward is great in heaven,
For (V)in like manner their fathers did to the prophets.
