Matthew 11:7-12 (Douay-Rheims)

7. And when they went their way, Jesus began to say to the multitude, concerning John: What went you out into the desert to see? a reed shaken with the wind?

8. But what went  you out to see? a man clothed in soft garments? Behold, they that are clothed in soft garments are in the houses of kings.

9.But what went you out to see? a prophet? yea, I tell you; and more than a prophet.

10. For this is he of whom it is written: Behold, I send my Angel before they face, who shall prepare they way before thee.

11. Amen I say to you, there hath not risen among them that are born of women a greater than John the Baptist: yet he that is lesser in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

12 And, from the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence; and the violent bear it away.

Matthew 5:1-11

1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain, and when he was set down, his disciples came unto him.

2 And opening his mouth he taught them, saying:

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land.

5 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

6 Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall have their fill.

7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8 Blessed are the clean of heart: they shall see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

10 Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake:
