Matthew 5:1 – BUT when Jeshu saw the multitudes, he ascended a mountain;
and when he had sat down, his disciples drew near to him;

Matthew 5:3 – BLESSED (are) the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:4 – Blessed the mourners, for they shall be comforted.

Matthew 5:9 – Blessed the makers of peace, for the children of Aloha shall they be called.
Matthew 5:10 – Blessed they who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:11 – Blessed are you when they treat you with reviling, and persecute you, and say concerning you every evil word, for my sake, in falsity.
Matthew 5:12 – Then be glad and exult, for your reward is great in heaven;
for so persecuted they the prophets who were before you.
Matthew 5:13 – You are the salt of the earth:
but if it happen that salt become tasteless, with what shall it be seasoned?
It goeth for nothing but to be thrown without and trodden down by men.
Matthew 5:14 – You are the light of the world:
It is not possible that a city which is built upon a hill can be hidden.
Matthew 5:15 – Nor do they kindle a lamp and place it beneath a measure, but on a candlestick, and it enlighteneth all who are in the house.
Matthew 5:16 – So let your light shine before the sons of men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 5:17 – Think not that I came to loose the law or the prophets:
not that I might loose, but that I might fulfill.
Matthew 5:18 – For, Amen I say unto you, that until heaven and earth shall pass away, one yod, or one point, [“One line.”-Codex Vienniensis.]
shall not pass from the law, till all be done.
Matthew 5:19 – Every one, therefore, who shall set loose one from these least commandments, and shall so teach the children of men, the least shall he be called in the kingdom of heaven:
but every one who shall do and teach [them] , this [one] shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:20 – For I say to you, that unless your righteousness shall abound more than that of the scribes
[Sophree. This order of public teachers
and the Pharishee, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:21 – YOU have heard that it was said unto them who were before,
Thou shalt not kill;
and whosoever shall kill is obnoxious to the judgment.
Matthew 5:22 – But I say unto you, that he who is angry against his brother rashly, is obnoxious to the judgment;
and he who shall say to his brother,
Thou empty one !
is liable to the council;
and every one who shall say,
Thou fool !
is liable to the gihano of fire.
Matthew 5:23 – If it occur, therefore, that thou bring thy oblation to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother retaineth some enmity against thee;
Matthew 5:24 – leave there thy oblation at the altar, and go, first be reconciled with thy brother, and then come and offer thy oblation.
Matthew 5:25 – Be at one with thine adversary
[Beel-dino, “lord of strife.”]
quickly, while thou art with him in the way;
lest thy adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the exactor, and thou fall into the house of the bound.
Matthew 5:26 – And, Amen I say unto thee, that thou shalt not come forth from thence till thou hast rendered the last shamuna.

Matthew 5:29 – But if thy right eye cause thee to offend, root it out and cast it from thee:
it is better to thee that one of thy members should perish, than that thy whole body should fall into gihano.

for it is better to thee that one from thy members should perish, rather than thy whole body should fall into gihano.
Matthew 5:31 – It hath been said, that he who looseth his wife should give her a writing of divorcement.

Matthew 5:33 – Again, you have heard it was said to those beforetime, Thou shalt not lie in thine oaths, but shalt fulfil thine oaths unto the Lord.
Matthew 5:34 – But I say unto you, Swear not at all:
not by heaven, for it is the throne of Aloha;
Matthew 5:35 – nor by earth, for it is the foot-stool beneath his feet;
neither by Urishlem, for it is the city of the great king.
Matthew 5:36 – Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, for thou canst not make a single hair in it either black or white.

bless them who execrate you;
do that which is good to him who hateth you;
and pray for them who lead you with a chain, and persecute you.
Matthew 5:45 – That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who causeth his sun to arise on the good and on the evil, and who sendeth showers on the just and on the unjust.

do not also the tribute-gatherers this ?
Matthew 5:48 – Be ye therefore perfect, as your Father who is in heaven is perfect !
Matthew 6:1 – SEE that in your almsgiving you do it not before men, so as that you may be observed by them;

Matthew 6:2 – When, therefore, thou art doing alms, sound not a trumpet before thee, as do the assumers of faces in the assemblies and streets, so that they may be praised from men;
and, Amen I say to you, they receive their reward.
Matthew 6:3 – But thou, when thou art doing thy alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth,
Matthew 6:4 – that thine alms may be in secret; and thy Father, who seeth in secret, shall recompense thee in openness.
Matthew 6:5 – And when thou prayest, be not as the face-takers, who love to stand in the assemblies and at the corners of the streets to pray, that they may be seen of men; [The sons of men.]
and truly I say to you that they receive their reward.
Matthew 6:6 – But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy secret chamber, and shut thy door, and pray to thy Father who is in secret;

for they think that in much speaking they are heard.
Matthew 6:8 – Be you not like them, for your Father knoweth what is needful for you before that you ask him.
Matthew 6:9 – Thus pray:
Our Father who art in the heavens! be sanctified thy Name.
Matthew 6:10 – Come thy kingdom.
Be done thy will, as in heaven, also in earth.
Matthew 6:11 – Give to us the bread of our need to-day;
Matthew 6:12 – and forgive us our debts, as also we forgive our debtors;
Matthew 6:13 – and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil.
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory to the age of ages.
Matthew 6:14 – For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Father who is in heaven will forgive you also.
Matthew 6:15 – But if you will not forgive men, your Father also forgiveth not your trespasses unto you.
Matthew 6:16 – WHEN, too, you fast, be not morosely sad as the assumers of faces, for they defile their countenances so as that they may appear unto men to fast:
and, Amen I say unto you, they receive their reward.
Matthew 6:17 – But thou, when thou art fasting, wash thy face and anoint thine head,
Matthew 6:18 – that it may not appear to men that thou art fasting, but to thy Father who is in secret;
and thy Father who seeth in secret, he shall reward thee.
Matthew 6:19 – Lay not up for yourselves treasures in the earth, a place where moth and rust corrupt, and where thieves dig through and steal:

Matthew 6:21 – For where your treasure is, there also your hearts are.
Matthew 6:22 – The lamp of the body is the eye:
if thine eye therefore be perfect, thy whole body will be illuminated;
Matthew 6:23 – but if thine eye be evil, thy whole body will be dark.
If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, what will thy darkness be ?
Matthew 6:24 – No man can serve two lords;
for the one he will hate, and the other he will love, or the one he will honour, and the other he will neglect:

Is not the life more excellent than food, and the body than raiment ?
Matthew 6:26 – Behold the fowls of the heaven;
they sow not, neither do they reap, nor collect into granaries;
yet your Father who is in heaven nourisheth them:
are you not far more considerable than they ?
Matthew 6:27 – But who among you by being anxious can add to his stature one cubit?
Matthew 6:28 – and concerning raiment why are you anxious ?

they toil not, neither do they spin.
Matthew 6:29 – Yet I say to you, Not even Shelemun in all his glory was covered like one from among these.

Matthew 7:4 – Or how sayest thou to thy brother,
Permit that I draw forth the rod from thine eye, and, behold, there is a rafter in thine own eye ?
Matthew 7:5 – Hypocrite !
draw forth first the rafter from thine own eye, and then thou wilt see to draw forth the rod from thy brother’s eye.
Matthew 7:6 – Give not the holy unto dogs, and throw not your precious stones before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

and they are few who find it !
Matthew 7:15 – Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but within are ravening wolves.
Matthew 7:16 – By their fruits you shall know them.
Do they gather from thorns grapes, or from briers figs?

but an evil tree maketh evil fruits.
Matthew 7:18 – A good tree cannot make evil fruits, nor an evil tree make good fruits.
Matthew 7:19 – Every tree that maketh not good fruits is cut down, and falleth into the fire.
Matthew 7:20 – Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.
