Luke 6: 20-26 (from the Douay-Rheims Bible)

And he, lifting up his eyes on his disciples, said: Blessed are ye poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.

Blessed are ye that hunger now: for you shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for you shall laugh.

Blessed shall you be when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

Be glad in that day and rejoice; for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For according to these things did their fathers to the prophets.

But woe to you that are rich: for you have your consolation.

Woe to you that are filled: for you shall hunger. Woe to you that now laugh: for you shall mourn and weep.

Woe to you when men shall bless you: for according to these things did their fathers to the false prophets.
