Blessed are they who mourn (5:4)

Count it all joy when ye fall into [. . .] afflictions (JST 1:2)

Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep, let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness […] and he shall lift you up. (4:9-10)



Blessed are the meek (5:5)

Receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls (1:21)

But the wisdom that is from above is [. . .] full of mercy (3:17)

The Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy (5:11)

The fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace (3:18)

For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. (2:10)

But I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment […] if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee […] first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. (5:22-24)

Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to aspeak, bslow to cwrath: For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. (1:19-20)

For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is […] peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy (3:16-17)



But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. (5:28)

Let no man say … he is tempted … of God: for God … neither tempteth any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. (1:13-15)

Swear not at all. [. . .] let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil (5:34, 37)

Swear not, [. . .] but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation (5:12)

Love your enemies […] 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. (5:44-45)

If ye fulfill the royal law [. . .] Thou shalt love thy neighbors as thyself, ye do well; But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin (2:8-9)

Be ye therefore perfect (5:49)

The trying of your faith worketh patience [. . .] let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect (1:4)

When thou doest thine alms, [. . .] thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly (6:3, 4)

Pure religion and undefiled [. . .] is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction (1:27)

Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts (4:3)

Let no man say … he is tempted …of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man (1:13)

For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. (6:14-15)

He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another? (4:11-12)

Lay up for yourselves treasure in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal (6:19)

Ye rich men, weep and howl [. . .] Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. Your gold and silver is cankered and the rust of them shall be a witness against you (5:1-3)

No man can serve two masters […] Ye cannot serve God and mammon. (6:24)

Know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. (4:4)

Take no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things itself (6:34)

Ye that say, Today or to morrow we will go into such a city, [. . .] and buy and sell [. . .] . Ye know not what shall be on the morrow. [. . .] Ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that (4:13-15)

I will shew thee my faith by my works (2:18)

Who is a wise man … among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. (3:13)



Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (7:21)

What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? […] For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (2:14, 26)

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man […] And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man (7:24, 26)

Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves (1:22)

To him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin (4:17)
