BLESSED

The kingdom of heaven is yours
even though your spirit is lacking,
for comfort awaits you
despite your mourning.
Accept the Earth, your inheritance,
for if you are meek, it will strengthen you.
Be satisfied as you righteously hunger and thirst,
and mercy shall be yours for as much as you show mercy.
You can be sure that only the pure of heart
will see God, and be sons of God
if you devote your life to peace.
For those of you who are wrongly persecuted
for doing what is right, will secure your heavenly place.
Should people insult you,
persecute you,
speak evil against you because you believe in the Father,
be glad in your rejoicing, you will be rewarded.
Blessed you shall be!
