Mattithyahu (Matthew) 5:8-20

 

8  "Baruḵ are the clean in heart, because they shall see Elohim. 

9  "Baruḵ are the peacemakers, because they shall be called sons of Elohim.

10  "Baruḵ are those persecuted for righteousness' sake, because theirs is the reign of the shamayim. 

11  "Baruḵ are you when they reproach and persecute you, and falsely say every wicked word against you, for My sake.

12  "Rejoice and be glad, because your reward in the shamayim is great. For in this way they persecuted the neḇi'im who were before you.

13  "You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt becomes tasteless, how shall it be seasoned? For it is no longer of any use but to be thrown out and to be trodden down by men.

14  "You are the light of the world. It is impossible for a city to be hidden on a mountain.

15  "Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it shines to all those in the house.

16  "Let your light so shine before men, so that they see your good works and praise your Father who is in the shamayim.

17  "Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Neḇi'im. I did not come to destroy but to complete.

18  "For truly, I say to you, till the shamayim and the earth pass away, one yod or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done.

19  "Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of the shamayim; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the shamayim.

20  "For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall by no means enter into the reign of the shamayim.
