Seeing the multitude of people, Jesus went up the Hill. There He seated Himself, and when His disciples came to Him,
He proceeded to teach them, and said:
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for to them belongs the Kingdom of the Heavens.
"Blessed are the mourners, for they shall be comforted.
"Blessed are the meek, for they as heirs shall obtain possession of the earth.
"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be completely satisfied.
