3'How blest are those who know that they are poor,
the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
4How blest are the sorrowful;
they shall find consolation.
5How blest are those of a gentle spirit;
they shall have the earth for their possession.
6How blest are those who hunger and thirst to see right prevail; [Or: to do what is right.]
they shall be satisfied.
7How blest are those who show mercy;
mercy shall be shown to them.
8How blest are those whose hearts are pure;
they shall see God.
9How blest are the peacemakers;
God shall call them his sons.
10How blest are those who have suffered persecution for the cause of right;
the kingdom of Heaven is theirs. 11'How blest you are, when you suffer insults and persecution and every kind of calumny for my sake.

Luke: 6
20THEN TURNING TO HIS DISCIPLES he began to speak:

'How blest are you who are poor; the kingdom of God is yours. 21'How blest are you who now go hungry; your hunger shall be satisfied.

'How blest are you who weep now; you shall laugh. 22'How blest you are when men hate you, when they outlaw you and insult you, and ban your very name as infamous, because of the Son of Man. 23On that day be glad and dance for joy; for assuredly you have a rich reward in heaven; in just the same way did their fathers treat the prophets.

Notes: The most generally known harmonies of the Gospels are based upon the Huck-Lietzmann Synopsis (1936) of the three gospels and Sparks' Synopsis (1964) of four gospels. Many of the passages in these harmonies are too short to display in a useful manner on a web-page.
The katapi New Study Bible Synopsis of the Gospels is based upon the headings displayed in the New Study Bible reference table which in turn follows the headings printed in the United Bible Societies' New Testament in Greek. These sections are more useful for bible study. Columns are arranged so that the first column is your chosen heading from the bible passage list (highlighted). The harmonies that follow across the web-page are then in the normally accepted order.
For Old Testament references quoted by New Testament authors, you should either go back to the passage listing web-page and select the link on the 'version' column; or click on the column heading and search through the chapter for the relevant passage; than select the OT passage from the reference column.
