Matthew
Chapter 5:1-14

1And seeing the multitudes, He went up onto a mountain; and when He was set, His disciples came unto Him.* 2And He opened His mouth and taught them, saying,

3"Blessed are the poor in spirit,

for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.

4Blessed are they that mourn,

for they shall be comforted.

5Blessed are the meek,

for they shall inherit the earth.*

6Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness,

for they shall be filled.*

7Blessed are the merciful,

for they shall obtain mercy.

8Blessed are the pure in heart,

for they shall see God.

9Blessed are the peacemakers,

for they shall be called the children of God.

10Blessed are they that are persecuted for righteousness' sake,

for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.*

11Blessed are ye when men shall revile you and persecute you,

and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for My sake.*

12Rejoice and be exceeding glad, for great is your reward in Heaven;

for so persecuted they the prophets who were before you.

13"Ye are the salt of the earth, but if the salt has lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out and to be trodden under foot of men.*

14"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.
