The Beatitudes(A)

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

(B)“Blessed are you poor,
For yours is the kingdom of God.
21 (C)Blessed are you who hunger now,
For you shall be (D)filled.[a]
(E)Blessed are you who weep now,
For you shall (F)laugh.
22 (G)Blessed are you when men hate you,
And when they (H)exclude you,
And revile you, and cast out your name as evil,
For the Son of Man’s sake.
23 (I)Rejoice in that day and leap for joy!
For indeed your reward is great in heaven,
For (J)in like manner their fathers did to the prophets.

Jesus Pronounces Woes

24 “But(K) woe to you (L)who are rich,
For (M)you have received your consolation.
25 (N)Woe to you who are full,
For you shall hunger.
(O)Woe to you who laugh now,
For you shall mourn and (P)weep.
26 (Q)Woe [b]to you when [c]all men speak well of you,
For so did their fathers to the false prophets.

Love Your Enemies(R)

27 (S)“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 (T)bless those who curse you, and (U)pray for those who spitefully use you. 29 (V)To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. (W)And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30 (X)Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. 31 (Y)And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.
