From Christian scripture, New Revised Standard Version.

A

B

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 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.
