Matthew 5:10-12 HCSB
Those who are persecuted for righteousness are blessed,
for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
“You are blessed when they insult and persecute you and falsely say every kind of evil against you because of Me. Be glad and rejoice, because your reward is great in heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
