the beatitudes

blessed are the poor in spirit

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven

blessed are those that mourn

for they shall be comforted

blessed are the meek

for they shall inherit the earth

blessed are those who hunger

and thirst for righteousness

for they shall be filled

blessed are the merciful

for they shall obtain mercy

blessed are the pure of 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

for theirs is the kingdom

of heaven
