And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain; and he having sat down, his disciples came to him. And having opened his mouth, he taught them, saying, Happy the poor in spirit: for their's is the kingdom of the heavens. read more.
Happy they suffering: for they shall be comforted. Happy the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Happy they hungering and thirsting for Justice: for they shall be filled. Happy the compasaionate: for they shall be commiserated. Happy the pure in heart: tor they shall see God. Happy they making peace: for they shall be called sons of God. Happy they driven out for justice: for their's is the kingdom of the heavens. Happy are ye, when they shall upbraid you, and drive you out, and say every evil word against you, lying, for my sake. Rejoice and be transported with joy; for much your reward in the heavens for so they drove out the prophets which before you. Ye are the salt of the earth: and if the salt be rendered insipid, with what shall it be salted? it is yet strong for nothing, except to be cast without, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city cannot be hid, set on a mountain. Neither do they burn a light, and set it under a basket, but upon a chandelier: and it shines to all in the house. So let your light shine before men, that they see your good works, and praise your Father, him in the heavens.

And obscenity, and silly discourse, or wit, which things concern not; but rather thankfulness. For this ye are knowing, that every fornicator, or unclean, or covetous person, who is an idolater, has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let none lead you astray with vain words: for by these things comes the anger of God upon the sons of disobedience. Be ye not therefore partakers with them. For ye were then darkness, and now light in the Lord: walk ye as children of light:

And of the times and seasons, brethren, ye have no need to write to you. For ye yourselves know accurately that the day of the Lord, as a thief in the night, so comes. For when they say, Peace and security; then sudden ruin is upon them, as anguish in her with child; and they may not escape. read more.
And ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day as a thief overtake you. Ye are all sons of light, and sons of day: we are not of night, nor of darkness.
