And it came to pass in those days, that he went out to a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
And when it was day, he called [to him] his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named Apostles;
Simon (whom he also named Peter) and Andrew his brother, James and John, and Philip and Bartholomew,
Matthew and Thomas, James the [son] of Alpheus, and Simon called Zelotes,
And Judas [the brother] of James, and Judas Iscariot, who also was the traitor.
And he came down with them, and stood in the plain; and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judea and Jerusalem, and from the sea-coast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;
And they that were afflicted with unclean spirits: and they were healed.
And the whole multitude sought to touch him; for there went virtue out of him, and healed [them] all.
And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed [are ye] poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.
Blessed [are] ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed [are ye] that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
Blessed are ye when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you [from their company], and shall reproach [you], and cast out your name as evil, on account of the son of man.
