Jesus raised his eyes to his disciples and said: “Happy are you who are poor, because God's kingdom is yours. 21Happy are you who hunger now, because you will be satisfied. Happy are you who weep now, because you will laugh. 22Happy are you when people hate you, reject you, insult you, and condemn your name as evil because of the Human One.a23Rejoice when that happens! Leap for joy because you have a great reward in heaven. Their ancestors did the same things to the prophets. 24But how terrible for you who are rich, because you have already received your comfort. 25How terrible for you who have plenty now, because you will be hungry. How terrible for you who laugh now, because you will mourn and weep. 26How terrible for you when all speak well of you. Their ancestors did the same things to the false prophets.
