17And he came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon,18 who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. And those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured.19 And all the crowd sought to touch him, forpower came out from him and healed them all.
20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples and said: “Blessed are you who are poor, foryours is the kingdom of God.
21 “Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.
22 “Blessed are you whenpeople hate you and when theyexclude you and revile you andspurn your name as evil,on account of the Son of Man! 23 Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven; forso their fathers did to the prophets.
24 “But woe to you who are rich,for youhave received your consolation.
25 “Woe to you who are full now, foryou shall be hungry. “Woe to you who laugh now, for you shall mourn and weep.
26 “Woe to you,when all people speak well of you, for so their fathers did to the false prophets.
