Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land.
And the meek shall increase their joy in the Lord:
and the poor men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
And they shall sanctify the Holy One of Jacob:
and shall glorify the God of Israel.
Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is very great in heaven.
