He said:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

                        Matthew 5:1-12 means to me that Poor in spirit, they will get the kingdom of heaven. Those who mourn they will be comforted. The meek, they will inherit the earth. Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness they will be filled with righteousness. The merciful will see mercy. The pure in heart,  They will see God. The peacemakers,  they will be called children of God. Those who are persecuted because of righteousness, theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are we when people do evil against you. Celebrate and be happy because great is the reward for you in heaven, and in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were there before you.
