Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
 For they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
    For they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    For they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
    For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    For they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    For they shall be called sons of God.
 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.  Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Matthew 5:1-13

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. 2 Corinthians 4:17

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Romans 8:18

God may be grieved at this time, showing He is not unfeeling. His grief nevertheless is far outweighed by the eternal joy and glory.

Hello @Rose Anna,

Compare Psalm 15 with the sermon on the mount. It is a picture of the perfect man: with a question in verse one; the summary of the question in the last verse; and answers in between. The 'Holy hill' being Mount Zion: the 'type' of the heavenly Kingdom.  It is the basis of the sermon on the mount.  Facinating!

Praise God!

Thank you.
In Christ Jesus
Cariad

Hello @Cariad
Thank you for your reply.
We know that:
No one apart from Christ, is yet perfect. 1 John 1:8-9
Although it depends as well on how perfect is defined.
Through the covering of the blood of Jesus and walking with Him as in the scripture you gave.
