5:1 Ἰδὼν δὲ τοὺς ὄχλους ἀνέβη εἰς τὸ ὄρος· καὶ καθίσαντος αὐτοῦ προσῆλθαν αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ. 5:2 καὶ ἀνοίξας τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ ἐδίδασκεν αὐτοὺς λέγων,

        5:3 μακάριοι οἱ πτωχοὶ τῷ πνεύματι,
        ὅτι αὐτῶν ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν.


        5:4 μακάριοι οἱ πενθοῦντες,
        ὅτι αὐτοὶ παρακληθήσονται.


        5:5 μακάριοι οἱ πραεῖς,
        ὅτι αὐτοὶ κληρονομήσουσιν τὴν γῆν.


        5:6 μακάριοι οἱ πεινῶντες καὶ διψῶντες τὴν δικαιοσύνην,
        ὅτι αὐτοὶ χορτασθήσανται.


        5:7 μακάριοι οἱ ἐλεήμονες,
        ὅτι αὐτοὶ ἐλεηθήσονται.


        5:8 μακάριοι οἱ καθαροὶ τῇ καρδίᾳ,
        ὅτι αὐτοὶ τὸν θεὸν ὄψονται


        5:9 μακάριοι οἱ εἰρηνοποιοί,
        ὅτι αὐτοὶ υἱοὶ θεοῦ κληθήσονται.


        5:10 μακάριοι οἱ δεδιωγμένοι ἕνεκεν δικαιοσύνης,
        ὅτι αὐτῶν ἔστιν ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν.


5:11 μακάριοι ἐστέ ὅταν ὀνειδίσωσιν ὑμᾶς καὶ διώξωσιν καὶ εἴπωσιν πᾶν πονηρὸν καθ' ὑμῶν ψευδόμενοι ἕνεκεν ἐμοῦ. 5:12 χαίρετε καὶ ἀγαλλιᾶσθε, ὅτι ὁ μισθὸς ὑμῶν πολὺς ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς. οὕτως γὰρ ἐδίωξαν τοὺς προφήτας τοὺς πρὸ ὑμῶν.

1 Peter 5:7 (memory verse) -

        Πᾶσαν τὴν μέριμναν ὑμῶν ἐπιρίψαντες ἐπ' αὐτόν,
        ὅτι αὐτῷ μέλει περὶ ὑμῶν.

Translation

From the King James version:
1 And 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 they shall inherit the earth.
6 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 peacemakers:
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 evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
1 Peter 5:7 (memory verse) --
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
