9 "Blessed are the peacemakers, for 1they shall be called sons of God. 10 "Blessed are those who have been 2persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for 3theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 "Blessed are you when people 4insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 12 "Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for 5in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Disciples and the World

13 "You are the salt of the earth; but 6if the salt has become tasteless, how acan it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men. 14 "You are 7the light of the world. A city set on a bhill cannot be hidden; 15 8nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a cbasket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 "Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may 9see your good works, and 10glorify your Father who is in heaven. 17 "Do not think that I came to abolish the 11Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. 18 "For truly I say to you, 12until heaven and earth pass away, not dthe smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 "Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches eothers to do the same, shall be called least 13in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever fkeeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
