1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: 

2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying, 

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 

4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. 

5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. 

6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. 

7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. 

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. 

9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

20 Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellors of peace is joy.

17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. 

18 For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men. 

19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.

1 God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods. 

2 How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. 

3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. 

4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

6 Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever.

3 The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.

13 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 

2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 

3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 

4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
