Matthew:5:3-13 Happy are the poor in spirit: for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.  Happy are those who are sad: for they will be comforted.  Happy are the gentle: for the earth will be their heritage.  Happy are those whose heart's desire is for righteousness: for they will have their desire.  Happy are those who have mercy: for they will be given mercy.  Happy are the clean in heart: for they will see God.  Happy are the peacemakers: for they will be named sons of God.  Happy are those who are attacked on account of righteousness: for the kingdom of heaven will be theirs.  Happy are you when men give you a bad name, and are cruel to you, and say all evil things against you falsely, because of me.  Be glad and full of joy; for great is your reward in heaven: for so were the prophets attacked who were before you.  You are the salt of the earth; but if its taste goes from the salt, how will you make it salt again? it is then good for nothing but to be put out and crushed under foot by men.
