Luke 6:20; Luke 6:21–31

The Beatitudes

20 And zhe lifted up his eyes on his disciples, aand said:

Blessed are you who are poor, for byours is the kingdom of God.


21 cBlessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied.

dBlessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.

22 Blessed are you when epeople hate you and when they fexclude you and revile you and gspurn your name as evil, hon account of the Son of Man! 23 iRejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven; for jso their fathers did to the prophets.

Jesus Pronounces Woes

24 kBut woe to you who are rich, lfor you mhave received your consolation.

25 Woe to you who are full now, for nyou shall be hungry.

Woe to oyou who laugh now, ofor you shall mourn and weep.

26 Woe to you, pwhen all people speak well of you, for qso their fathers did to rthe false prophets.

Love Your Enemies

27 But I say to you who hear, sLove your enemies, tdo good to those who hate you, 28 ubless those who curse you, spray for those who abuse you. 29 vTo one who wstrikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic1 either. 30 xGive to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. 31 And yas you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.
