Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:2 - He opened His mouth and began to teach them, saying,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:3 - [fn]Blessed are the [fn]poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:4 - “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:5 - “Blessed are the [fn]gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:6 - “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:7 - “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:11 - “Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:12 - “Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:13 - “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how [fn]can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:14 - “You are the light of the world. A city set on a [fn]hill cannot be hidden;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:15 - nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a [fn]basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:16 - “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:17 - “Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:18 - “For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not [fn]the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:19 - “Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches [fn]others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever [fn]keeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:20 - “For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:21 - “You have heard that [fn]the ancients were told, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT MURDER’ and ‘Whoever commits murder shall be [fn]liable to the court.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:22 - “But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be [fn]guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, ‘[fn]You good-for-nothing,’ shall be [fn]guilty before [fn]the supreme court; and whoever says, ‘You fool,’ shall be [fn]guilty enough to go into the [fn]fiery hell.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:23 - “Therefore if you are presenting your [fn]offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:24 - leave your [fn]offering there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and present your [fn]offering.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:25 - “Make friends quickly with your opponent at law while you are with him on the way, so that your opponent may not hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the officer, and you be thrown into prison.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:26 - “Truly I say to you, you will not come out of there until you have paid up the last [fn]cent.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:27 - “You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY’;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:28 - but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:29 - “If your right eye makes you [fn]stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you [fn]to lose one of the parts of your body, [fn]than for your whole body to be thrown into [fn]hell.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:30 - “If your right hand makes you [fn]stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you [fn]to lose one of the parts of your body, [fn]than for your whole body to go into [fn]hell.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:31 - “It was said, ‘WHOEVER SENDS HIS WIFE AWAY, LET HIM GIVE HER A CERTIFICATE OF DIVORCE’;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:32 - but I say to you that everyone who [fn]divorces his wife, except for the reason of unchastity, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries a [fn]divorced woman commits adultery.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:33 - “Again, you have heard that [fn]the ancients were told, ‘[fn]YOU SHALL NOT [fn]MAKE FALSE VOWS, BUT SHALL FULFILL YOUR [fn]VOWS TO THE LORD.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:34 - “But I say to you, make no oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:35 - or by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet, or [fn]by Jerusalem, for it is THE CITY OF THE GREAT KING.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:36 - “Nor shall you make an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:37 - “But let your statement be, ‘Yes, yes’ or ‘No, no’; anything beyond these is [fn]of evil.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:38 - “You have heard that it was said, ‘AN EYE FOR AN EYE, AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:39 - “But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:40 - “If anyone wants to sue you and take your [fn]shirt, let him have your [fn]coat also.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:41 - “Whoever [fn]forces you to go one mile, go with him two.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:42 - “Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:43 - “You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate your enemy.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:44 - “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:45 - so that you may [fn]be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:46 - “For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:47 - “If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 5:48 - “Therefore [fn]you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
