ND seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him. 2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, 3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek: for th; shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. 7, Blessed are the merciful : for they shall obtain mercy. 8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. •9 Blessed are the peace-makers: for they shall be called the children of God."10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of

be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out and to be trodden under foot of Inen. 14, Ye, are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. * 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick: and it #. light unto all that are in e house. :16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your your Father which is in heaven. * 17 TI Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am notcome to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily, I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise floom the law, till all be ful€01. 19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach

men so, he shall be called ther

least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do, and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 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.

TAKE heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them : otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 2 Therefore, when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumet before thee, as the hypocrites o, in the synagogues, and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily, I say unto you, They have their reward. 3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth ;

thee, and from him that would O

, 4 That thine alms may be in

secret:” and thy Father which seeth in secret, himself shall reward thee openly. . . . 5 TI And, when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are : for they love to pray standing in the synagogues, and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily, I say unto you, They have their reward. * 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father, which is in secret; and thy Father, which seeth in -secret, shall reward thee openly. . . . . 7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall beheard for their much speaking. ... 8 Be not-ye otherefore like unto them : for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of before ye ask him. : 9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy -Ilanlè. ... 10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth as it is in “heaven. * * * * ... 11 Give us this day our daily bread. * * * * 12 And forgive us our debts, aS We §. our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temp‘tation, but deliver us from evil.

thy face;
