10 "Blessed are those who have been 1persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for 2theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 "Blessed are you when people 3insult 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 4in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
