O,THE GLADNESS

"O, the gladness of the poor in spirit!
     For theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
O, the gladness of those who mourn!
    For they will be comforted.
O, the gladness of the humble!
    For they will inherit the earth.
O, the gladness of those who hunger
    and thirst for tzedakah!
         For they will be satisfied.
O, the gladness of the compassionate!
    For they will be shown compassion.
O, the gladness of the pure of heart!
    For they will behold God.
O, the gladness of those who pursue shalom!
    For they will be called the sons of God.
O, for the gladness of those who are pursued
    on account of tzedakah!
        For theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
O, your gladness if they insult you and  pursue you,
    falsely speaking all kinds of evil about you for my sake!
Be happy and rejoice,
    because your reward in heaven is great,
        for so they pursued the prophets
             who were before you.”

Mattai 5:3-12
