Book of Matthew: Chapter 5

Vulgate (Latin)King James (English)
5:1 videns autem turbas ascendit in montem et cum sedisset accesserunt ad eum discipuli eius5:1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
5:2 et aperiens os suum docebat eos dicens5:2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
5:3 beati pauperes spiritu quoniam ipsorum est regnum caelorum5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
5:4 beati mites quoniam ipsi possidebunt terram5:4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5:5 beati qui lugent quoniam ipsi consolabuntur5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
5:6 beati qui esuriunt et sitiunt iustitiam quoniam ipsi saturabuntur5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
5:7 beati misericordes quia ipsi misericordiam consequentur5:7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
5:8 beati mundo corde quoniam ipsi Deum videbunt5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
5:9 beati pacifici quoniam filii Dei vocabuntur5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
5:10 beati qui persecutionem patiuntur propter iustitiam quoniam ipsorum est regnum caelorum5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
5:11 beati estis cum maledixerint vobis et persecuti vos fuerint et dixerint omne malum adversum vos mentientes propter me5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
5:12 gaudete et exultate quoniam merces vestra copiosa est in caelis sic enim persecuti sunt prophetas qui fuerunt ante vos5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
5:13 vos estis sal terrae quod si sal evanuerit in quo sallietur ad nihilum valet ultra nisi ut mittatur foras et conculcetur ab hominibus5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
5:14 vos estis lux mundi non potest civitas abscondi supra montem posita5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
5:15 neque accendunt lucernam et ponunt eam sub modio sed super candelabrum ut luceat omnibus qui in domo sunt5:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
5:16 sic luceat lux vestra coram hominibus ut videant vestra bona opera et glorificent Patrem vestrum qui in caelis est5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
5:17 nolite putare quoniam veni solvere legem aut prophetas non veni solvere sed adimplere5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
5:18 amen quippe dico vobis donec transeat caelum et terra iota unum aut unus apex non praeteribit a lege donec omnia fiant5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
5:19 qui ergo solverit unum de mandatis istis minimis et docuerit sic homines minimus vocabitur in regno caelorum qui autem fecerit et docuerit hic magnus vocabitur in regno caelorum5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
5:20 dico enim vobis quia nisi abundaverit iustitia vestra plus quam scribarum et Pharisaeorum non intrabitis in regnum caelorum5:20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
5:21 audistis quia dictum est antiquis non occides qui autem occiderit reus erit iudicio5:21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
5:22 ego autem dico vobis quia omnis qui irascitur fratri suo reus erit iudicio qui autem dixerit fratri suo racha reus erit concilio qui autem dixerit fatue reus erit gehennae ignis5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
5:23 si ergo offeres munus tuum ad altare et ibi recordatus fueris quia frater tuus habet aliquid adversum te5:23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
5:24 relinque ibi munus tuum ante altare et vade prius reconciliare fratri tuo et tunc veniens offers munus tuum5:24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
5:25 esto consentiens adversario tuo cito dum es in via cum eo ne forte tradat te adversarius iudici et iudex tradat te ministro et in carcerem mittaris5:25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
5:26 amen dico tibi non exies inde donec reddas novissimum quadrantem5:26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
5:27 audistis quia dictum est antiquis non moechaberis5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
5:28 ego autem dico vobis quoniam omnis qui viderit mulierem ad concupiscendum eam iam moechatus est eam in corde suo5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
5:29 quod si oculus tuus dexter scandalizat te erue eum et proice abs te expedit enim tibi ut pereat unum membrorum tuorum quam totum corpus tuum mittatur in gehennam5:29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
5:30 et si dextera manus tua scandalizat te abscide eam et proice abs te expedit tibi ut pereat unum membrorum tuorum quam totum corpus tuum eat in gehennam5:30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
5:31 dictum est autem quicumque dimiserit uxorem suam det illi libellum repudii5:31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
5:32 ego autem dico vobis quia omnis qui dimiserit uxorem suam excepta fornicationis causa facit eam moechari et qui dimissam duxerit adulterat5:32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
5:33 iterum audistis quia dictum est antiquis non peierabis reddes autem Domino iuramenta tua5:33 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:
5:34 ego autem dico vobis non iurare omnino neque per caelum quia thronus Dei est5:34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:
5:35 neque per terram quia scabillum est pedum eius neque per Hierosolymam quia civitas est magni Regis5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
5:36 neque per caput tuum iuraveris quia non potes unum capillum album facere aut nigrum5:36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
5:37 sit autem sermo vester est est non non quod autem his abundantius est a malo est5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
5:38 audistis quia dictum est oculum pro oculo et dentem pro dente5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
5:39 ego autem dico vobis non resistere malo sed si quis te percusserit in dextera maxilla tua praebe illi et alteram5:39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
5:40 et ei qui vult tecum iudicio contendere et tunicam tuam tollere remitte ei et pallium5:40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
5:41 et quicumque te angariaverit mille passus vade cum illo alia duo5:41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
5:42 qui petit a te da ei et volenti mutuari a te ne avertaris5:42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
5:43 audistis quia dictum est diliges proximum tuum et odio habebis inimicum tuum5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
5:44 ego autem dico vobis diligite inimicos vestros benefacite his qui oderunt vos et orate pro persequentibus et calumniantibus vos5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
5:45 ut sitis filii Patris vestri qui in caelis est qui solem suum oriri facit super bonos et malos et pluit super iustos et iniustos5:45 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.
5:46 si enim diligatis eos qui vos diligunt quam mercedem habebitis nonne et publicani hoc faciunt5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
5:47 et si salutaveritis fratres vestros tantum quid amplius facitis nonne et ethnici hoc faciunt5:47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
5:48 estote ergo vos perfecti sicut et Pater vester caelestis perfectus est5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
