Luke 6:20-23 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
20 Jesus looked at his followers and said,
“Great blessings belong to you who are poor.
22 “People will hate you because you belong to the Son of Man. They will make you leave their group. They will insult you. They will think it is wrong even to say your name. When these things happen, know that great blessings belong to you. 23 You can be happy then and jump for joy, because you have a great reward in heaven. The ancestors of those people did the same things to the prophets.
