The Beatitudes

(Matthew 5:1-12)

Now when he Jesus saw the crowds,
he went up on a mountainside and sat down.
His disciples came to him,
and he began to teach them saying:

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
or they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you,
persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven,
for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

  1. Hi Jonie,

    I don’t go much to church services but I know that the Holy Trinity are the key people in my life as long as I pray or read my bible and the greatness of Jesus.
