Matthew 5


5:1 And seeing the multitudes, he ascended a mountain: and when
 he was seated, his disciples came to him.
5:2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
5:3 Blessed [are] the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom
 of heaven.
5:4 Blessed [are] they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5:5 Blessed [are] the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
5:6 Blessed [are] they who hunger and thirst for righteousness:
 for they shall be filled.
5:7 Blessed [are] the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
5:8 Blessed [are] the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
5:9 Blessed [are] the peace-makers: for they shall be called
 children of God.
5:10 Blessed [are] they who are persecuted for righteousness'
 sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
5:11 Blessed are ye when men shall revile you, and persecute
 [you], and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely,
 for my sake.
5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great [is] your reward
 in heaven: for so they persecuted the prophets who were before
 you.
5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt hath lost its
 savor, with what shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for
 nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot by
 men.
5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill
 cannot be hid.
5:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a close
 vessel, but on a candlestick: and it giveth light to all that
 are in the house.
5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your
 good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the
 prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
5:18 For verily I say to you, Till heaven and earth shall pass
 away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law,
 till all be fulfilled.
5:19 Whoever 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 whoever shall do, and teach
 [them], the same shall be called great in the kingdom of
 heaven.
5:20 For I say to 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.
5:21 Ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, Thou
 shalt not kill; and whoever shall kill, shall be in danger of
 the judgment:
5:22 But I say to you, That whoever is angry with his brother
 without a cause, shall be in danger of the judgment: and
 whoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of
 the council: but whoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in
 danger of hell-fire.
5:23 Therefore if thou shalt bring thy gift to the altar, and
 there remember that thy brother hath aught against thee;
5:24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way;
 first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy
 gift.
5:25 Agree with thy adversary quickly, while 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.
5:26 Verily, I say to thee, thou shalt by no means come out
 thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
5:27 Ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, Thou
 shalt not commit adultery:
5:28 But I say to you, That whoever looketh on a woman to lust
 after her, hath committed adultery with her already in his
 heart.
5:29 And if thy right eye shall cause thee to sin, 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.
5:30 And if thy right hand shall cause thee to sin, 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.
5:31 It hath been said, Whoever shall put away his wife, let him
 give her a writing of divorcement:
5:32 But I say to you, That whoever shall put away his wife,
 saving for the cause of lewdness, causeth her to commit
 adultery: and whoever shall marry her that is divorced,
 committeth adultery.
5:33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said to them of old
 time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform to the
 Lord thy oaths:
5:34 But I say to you, Swear not at all: neither by heaven; for
 it is God's throne:
5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by
 Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King,
5:36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst
 not make one hair white or black.
5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea, Nay, nay: for
 whatever [is] more than these cometh of evil.
5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye,
 and a tooth for a tooth.
5:39 But I say to you, That ye resist not evil: but whoever
 shall strike thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other
 also.
5:40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy
 coat, let him have [thy] cloke also.
5:41 And whoever shall constrain thee [to go] one mile, go with
 him two.
5:42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would
 borrow of thee, turn not thou away.
5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy
 neighbor, and hate thy enemy:
5:44 But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse
 you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who
 despitefully use you, and persecute you;
5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father who [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.
5:46 For if ye love them who love you, what reward have ye? do
 not even the publicans the same?
5:47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more [than
 others]? do not even the publicans so?
5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father who is in
 heaven is perfect.
