And the report of him went forth 24 into all Syria : and they brought unto him all that were sick, holden with divers diseases and torments, 'possessed with devils, and epileptic, and palsied; and he healed them. And there 25 followed him great multitudes from Galilee and Decapolis and Jerusalem and Judæa and from beyond Jordan.

And seeing the multitudes, he went up into 5 the mountain : and when he had sat down, his disciples came unto him: and he opened his 2 mouth and taught them, saying,

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall 8 see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall 9 be called sons of God.

Blessed are they that have been persecuted 10 for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye when men 11 shall reproach you, and persecute you, and say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice and be exceeding glad : for great is 12 your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Ye are the salt of the earth : but if the salt 13 have lost its savour, wherewith shall it be salted ? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but

glorify your Father which is in heaven. 17 Think not that I came to destroy the law or

the prophets: I came not to destroy, but to 18 fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven

no wise pass away from the law, till all things be 19 accomplished. Whosoever therefore shall break

one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and

teach them, he shall be called great in the 20 kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you,

that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of

heaven. 21 Ye have heard that it was said to them of old
