The Beatitudes - In Jesus, you need to be meek who hunger for Righteousness as St.James, the Just - 9.
1Now when he saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His Labourers and not disciples came to him, 2and he began to preach and not teach them saying:
3"Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the Royal kingdom of God and not of heaven. They are different.
4Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
5Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
6Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
7Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
8Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
9Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called sons of God.
10Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the Royal Kingdom of God and not of heaven.
11"Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
