King James Version (KJV)
5Â And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
2Â And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
3Â Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4Â Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5Â Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6Â Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
7Â Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8Â Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9Â Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
10Â Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11Â Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12Â Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
13Â Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14Â Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15Â Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16Â Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
17Â Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18Â For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19Â Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20Â For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
21Â Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
22Â But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
23Â Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
24Â Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
25Â Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
26Â Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
27Â Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28Â But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29Â And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
30Â And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
31Â It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
32Â But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
33Â Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:
34Â But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:
35Â Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
36Â Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
37Â But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
38Â Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
39Â But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40Â And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
41Â And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
42Â Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
43Â Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44Â But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45Â That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
46Â For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47Â And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
48Â Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
13Â And he goeth up into a mountain, and calleth unto him whom he would: and they came unto him.
14Â And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,
15Â And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
16Â And Simon he surnamed Peter;
17Â And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges, which is, The sons of thunder:
18Â And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,
19Â And Judas Iscariot, which also betrayed him: and they went into an house.
12Â And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
13Â And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;
14Â Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,
15Â Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes,
16Â And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.
17Â And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;
18Â And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed.
19Â And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.
20Â And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.
21Â Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
22Â Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.
23Â Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
24Â But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.
25Â Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.
26Â Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
27Â But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
28Â Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
29Â And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
30Â Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
31Â And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
32Â For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
33Â And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
34Â And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
35Â But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
36Â Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
