3Blessed 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 which do 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 which 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 .
