5:2 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 those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
5:5 Blessed are the humble, for they shall inherit the earth.
5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.
5:7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
5:12 Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
5:17 Don`t think that I came to destroy the law or the prophets. I didn`t come to destroy, but to fulfill.
5:19 Whoever, therefore, shall break one of these least commandments, and teach others to do so, shall be called least in the Kingdom of Heaven; but whoever shall do and teach them shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.
5:20 For I tell you, that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, there is no way you shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.
5:22 But I tell you, that everyone who 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; and whoever shall say, `You fool,` shall be in danger of the fire of Gehenna.
5:23 If therefore you are offering your gift at the altar, and there remember that your brother has anything against you,
5:25 Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are with him in the way; lest perhaps the prosecutor deliver you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and you be cast into prison.
5:26 Most assuredly I tell you, you shall by no means get out of there, until you have paid the last penny.
5:27 You have heard that it was said, `You shall not commit adultery;`
5:28 but I tell you that everyone who gazes at a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.
5:31 It was also said, `Whoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorce,`
5:32 but I tell you that whoever who puts away his wife, except for the cause of sexual immorality, makes her an adulteress; and whoever shall marry her when she is put away commits adultery.
5:34 but I tell you, don`t swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is the throne of God;
5:35 nor by the earth, for it is the footstool of his feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.
5:37 But let your speech be, `Yes, yes; No, no.` Whatever is more than these is of the evil one.
5:39 But I tell you, don`t resist him who is evil; but whoever strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.
5:41 Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.
5:42 Give to him who asks you, and don`t turn away him who desires to borrow from you.
5:43 You have heard that it was said, `You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.`
5:44 But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,
5:46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Don`t even the tax collectors do the same?
5:47 If you only greet your friends, what more do you do than others? Don`t even the tax collectors do the same?
5:48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
