Blessed are The Poor In Spirit
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked:
who can know it?
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought
into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.
Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify t
he people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.
Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp,
bearing his reproach.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy
God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and
whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
