Bible verse, Gospel of the Lord about ‘Blessed Children of God.
Matthew 5:9 | The Beatitudes
1, When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up on the mountain and sat down. His disciples came to Him,
2, and He began to teach them, saying:
3, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4, Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
5, Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
6, Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
7, Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
8, Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
9, Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.
10, Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
12, Rejoice and celebrate, because great is your reward in heaven; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets before you.
13, You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its savor, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.
14, You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.
