Happiness: When God Talks to You ‐ Jackie Mobed
1 O Lord, who shall abide in your tent? Who shall dwell in your holy hill?
2 The one who walks blamelessly, and does what is right, and speaks truth from the heart;
3 who does not slander with the tongue, and does no evil to a friend, nor takes up a reproach against a neighbor;
4 in whose eyes a reproach is despised, but who honors those who fear the Lord;
5 who does not put out money at interest, and does not take a bribe against the innocent. The one who does these things shall never be moved.
Matthew 5: 1-12- New Revised Standard Version
1 When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain, and after he sat down, his disciples came to him.
2 And he began to speak and taught them saying:
3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
5 “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.
8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see god.
9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of god.
10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven
11 “Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
