Luke 6:20-26 - Happiness And Sorrow

20 Then he looked up at his disciples and said: "Blessed are you who are poor, for the kingdom of God belongs to you. 21 "Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. "Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh. 22 "Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you and insult you and reject you as evil on account of the Son of Man!

23 Rejoice in that day, and jump for joy, because your reward is great in heaven. For their ancestors did the same things to the prophets.

24 "But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your comfort already. 25 "Woe to you who are well satisfied with food now, for you will be hungry. "Woe to you who laugh now, for you will mourn and weep. 26 "Woe to you when all people speak well of you, for their ancestors did the same things to the false prophets.
