Matthew 5: The Beatitudes

Extraordinary Jeni

In Matthew 4 the last lines had everyone flocking to Jesus because of His wonderful miracles. When He saw the crowds He went up on the mountaintop and sat. His disciples came to Him and He began to teach them what He expected from them.

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 children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
