Matthew 5:1-12Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
The Sermon on the Mount
5 When He saw the crowds, He went up on the mountain, and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him. 2 Then[a] He began to teach them, saying:
3 “The poor in spirit are blessed,
11 “You are blessed when they insult and persecute you and falsely say every kind of evil against you because of Me. 12 Be glad and rejoice, because your reward is great in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
