Matthew   5: 1-12

5:1 Then, seeing the crowds, he ascended the mountain, and when he had sat down, his disciples drew near to him,
5:2 and opening his mouth, he taught them, saying:
5:3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
5:4 Blessed are the meek, for they shall possess the earth.
5:5 Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be consoled.
5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice, for they shall be satisfied.
5:7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
5:10 Blessed are those who endure persecution for the sake of justice, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
5:11 Blessed are you when they have slandered you, and persecuted you, and spoken all kinds of evil against you, falsely, for my sake:
5:12 be glad and exult, for your reward in heaven is plentiful. For so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
