    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    4 (E)Blessed are those who mourn,
    For they shall be comforted.
    5 (F)Blessed are the meek,
    For (G)they shall inherit the [a]earth.
    6 Blessed are those who (H)hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    (I)For they shall be filled.
    7 Blessed are the merciful,
    (J)For they shall obtain mercy.
    8 (K)Blessed are the pure in heart,
    For (L)they shall see God.
    9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
    For they shall be called sons of God.
    10 (M)Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    11 (N)Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of (O)evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 (P)Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for (Q)so they persecuted the prophets who were before you
