When Jesus saw the crowds, he climbed up the hill. After he sat down, his disciples came to Him,
then Jesus began to teach them:
Blessed are those who feel helpless and just rely on God alone; they are members of God's people!
Blessed are they that mourn; God will comfort them!
Blessed are the humble, God will fulfill His promise to them!
Blessed are those who yearn to do the will of God; God will satisfy them!
Blessed are those who feel sorry for others; God will be merciful to them as well!
Blessed are the pure in heart: they will know God.
Blessed are the peacemakers among humans; God will admit them as His children!
Blessed are they who suffer persecution for doing the will of God; they are members of God's people!
Blessed are you when denounced, persecuted, and maligned by me.
The prophets who lived before you even been abused like that. Rejoice and be glad, because great is reward in heaven that God provided for you. "
You are the salt of the earth. But if salt becomes tasteless, could be salted again? There's no point anymore, but discarded and trampled by men.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.
Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a peck measure, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.
Same way your light must shine before men, that they may see things you do well, then praise your Father in heaven. "
Do not assume that I have come to abolish the law of Moses and the teachings of the prophets. I came not to abolish, but to show the true meaning.
Remember! During the heavens and the earth is still there, one of the smallest letter or any point within the law, will not be eliminated, if it has not happened!
Therefore, whoever violates any of the commandments, even the smallest, and teaches others to do the same, will be the smallest among the people of God. Instead, whoever runs the commandments and teaches others to do the same, will be great among the people of God.
So remember: You're not likely to be the people of God, if not exceed the religious teachers and Pharisees in terms of doing the will of God! "
You have heard that it was said to the men of old, You shall not kill, and whoever kills shall be liable to and unable to escape the punishment imposed by the court.
But now I say unto you, whosoever anger to others, will be prosecuted; and cursing whoever else, will stand trial before the Sanhedrin. And whoever says to others, 'Stupid,' should be thrown into the fire of hell.
Therefore, if one of you is being offered gift to God, then remembered that someone was hurt against him, (23) So Pls help if you are offering your gift at the altar you there remember That your brother has any [grievance ] against you,
let him leave before offering it in front of the altar, and go make peace with that person. After that, he can stay back and offered his gift to God.
If anyone of you complain to the court, reconciled with him for there was still time before arriving at the court. If not, that person will betray you to the judge, who will deliver you to the police. Then the police will put you in jail.Truly I say to you, you will not be released until you have paid the last fraction of a penny.
You know that there are courses like this: Do not commit adultery.
But I say to you that everyone who so much as looks at a woman with evil desire for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw away those eyes! Better to lose one member of your body all over your body rather than thrown into hell.
If your right hand causes you to sin, cut and throw away that hand! Better to lose the entire hand rather than your body go into hell. "
There are also courses like this: everyone who divorces his wife must give her the divorce papers. Also It has been said, Whoever divorces his wife must give her a certificate of Divorce. But I say unto you: Everyone who divorces his wife except for marital unfaithfulness, he makes his wife commit adultery, and anyone who marries the divorced woman, she commits adultery.
You know that there are teachings of our ancestors like this: do not deny an appointment. What you promised with an oath before God, must you do it.
But now I say to you: do not swear at all, either by heaven, because heaven is the throne of God, (34) But I tell you, Do not bind yourselves by an Oath at all: either by heaven, for it is the throne of God ;
) and for the sake of the earth, because earth is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem, because Jerusalem is the city of the great King.
Do not also swear by thy head, because you yourself can not make your hair turn white or black, even on a sheet. (36) And do not Swear by your head, for you are not Able to make a single hair white or black. Say 'Yes' or 'No' - more than that coming from the Devil. "
You know that there are also courses like this: eye for eye, tooth for a tooth. You have Heard That it was said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.
But now I say to you: do not take revenge on those who do evil to you. Conversely if someone slaps your right cheek, let him slap your left cheek too.
And if people complain and sue you to judge your shirt, give him your cloak also.
And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two [miles].
If people ask you something, give it to him. And do not also reject those who want to borrow something than you. "
You know that there are also courses like this: Love your friends and hate your enemies.But I say unto you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.
that you may become sons of your Father in heaven. For God issued His sun to good people and for people who are evil, too. He sends rain to those who do right and for those who do evil as well.
Because if you love only those who love you only, for what God had to repay for it? Did not even the tax collectors doing that?
And if you greet only to your friends, whether special? People who do not know God even do that!
Your Father in heaven loves everybody perfectly. You must be so too. "
