“Blessed are the poor in spirit,(A)
for the kingdom of heaven(B) is theirs.
Blessed are those who mourn,(C)
for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the humble,(D)
for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,(E)
for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.(F)
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.(G)
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called sons of God.(H)
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for the kingdom of heaven(I) is theirs.

11 “You are blessed when they insult you 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(J) the prophets who were before you.(K)
