Blessed are the poor in spirit:  for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn:  for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek:  for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they who do hunger and thirst after righteousness:  for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful:  for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart:  for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers:  for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake:  for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
