"Blessit be pure men in spirit; for the kingdom of heuenis is thairis.Blessit be myld men: for thai sal weld the erde. Blessit be thai that murnis: for thai salbe confortit. Blessit be thai that hungris and threstis richtwisnes: for thai salbe fulfillit. Blessit be merciful men: for thai sal get mercy. Blessit be thai that ar of clene hart: for thai sal se God. Blessit be peciabile men: for thai salbe be callit Goddis childir. Blessit be thai that suffiris persecutioun for richtwisnes: for the kingdom of heuenis is thairis. Ye salbe blessit quhen men sal curse you, and sal persew you, and sal say al euil aganis you leand, for me. Joy ye, and be ye glaid: for your mede is plentuous in heuenis: for sa thai haue persewit alsa prophetis that war before you. Ye ar salt of the erde: that gif the salt vanyse away, qhuarein sal be it saltit? to nathing is it worthi ouer, but that it be castin out, and be defoulit of men."
