for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for
righteousness, for they will be filled.
for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
for they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of
righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
He has also set eternity in the hearts of men;
yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion,
"Your God reigns!"
and the creatures of the field are mine.
There the birds make their nests;
the stork has its home in the pine trees.
the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds.
And God saw that it was good.
