Context Readings

The Beatitudes

11 Blessed are you when people taunt you, and persecute you, and say everything evil about you--untruly, and on my account. 12  Be glad and rejoice, because your reward in Heaven will be great; for so men persecuted the Prophets who lived before you. 13 It is you who are the Salt of the earth; but, if the salt should lose its strength, what will you use to restore its saltiness? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown away, and trampled underfoot.
