Matthew 5 (KJV)

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.




10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.




11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile (criticize) you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.




16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.




Pharisees

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.




22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca {A term of reproach used by the Jews of our Savior's time, meaning "worthless."},shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.





27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

The body too, can be referred to as the church and the member as one member of the congregation ~ Karmen




31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.




33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:
35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:.
36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.




37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.




43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;




45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.




46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

( Men who bought or farmed the taxes under the Roman government were called publicani)


48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
