5:1 ʼΙδὼν δὲ τοὺς ʼόχλους ἀνέβη εἰς τὸ ʼόρος· καὶ καθίσαντος αὐτου̂ προση̂λθαν αὐτῳ̂ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτου̂. 5:2 καὶ ἀνοίξας τὸ στόμα αὐτου̂ ἐδίδασκεν αὐτοὺς λέγων,

        5:3 μακάριοι οἱ πτωχοὶ τῳ̂ πνεύματι,
        ʽότι αὐτω̂ν ἡ βασιλεία τω̂ν οὐρανω̂ν.

        5:4 μακάριοι οἱ πενθου̂ντες,
        ʽότι αὐτοὶ παρακληθήσονται.

        5:5 μακάριοι οἱ πραει̂ς,
        ʽότι αὐτοὶ κληρονομήσουσιν τὴν γη̂ν.

        5:6 μακάριοι οἱ πεινω̂ντες καὶ διψω̂ντες τὴν δικαιοσύνην,
        ʽότι αὐτοὶ χορτασθήσανται.

        5:7 μακάριοι οἱ ἐλεήμονες,
        ʽότι αὐτοὶ ἐλεηθήσονται.

        5:8 μακάριοι οἱ καθαροὶ τῃ̂ καρδίᾳ,
        ʽότι αὐτοὶ τὸν θεὸν ʼόψονται

        5:9 μακάριοι οἱ εἰρηνοποιοί,
        ʽότι αὐτοὶ υἱοὶ θεου̂ κληθήσονται.

        5:10 μακάριοι οἱ δεδιωγμένοι ʽένεκεν δικαιοσύνης,
        ʽότι αὐτω̂ν ʼέστιν ἡ βασιλεία τω̂ν οὐρανω̂ν.

5:11 μακάριοι ἐστέ ʽόταν ὀνειδίσωσιν ὑμα̂ς καὶ διώξωσιν καὶ εʼίπωσιν πα̂ν πονηρὸν καθ' ὑμω̂ν ψευδόμενοι ʽένεκεν ἐμου̂. 5:12 χαίρετε καὶ ἀγαλλια̂σθε, ʽότι ὁ μισθὸς ὑμω̂ν πολὺς ἐν τοι̂ς οὐρανοι̂ς. οʽύτως γὰρ ἐδίωξαν τοὺς προφήτας τοὺς πρὸ ὑμω̂ν.

1 Peter 5:7 (memory verse) -

        Πα̂σαν τὴν μέριμναν ὑμω̂ν ἐπιρίψαντες ἐπ' αὐτόν,
        ʽότι αὐτῳ̂ μέλει περὶ ὑμω̂ν.


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.
