THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT

 "And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set,

his disciples came unto him: And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying":

 

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

 

Ask, and it shall be given you;

seek, and ye shall find;

knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

For every one that asketh receiveth;

and he that seeketh findeth;

and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

 

Whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them,

I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

And the rain descended, and the floods came,

and the winds blew, and beat upon that house;

and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. 
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you,

and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 
Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven:

for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
