"Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh."
(Luke 6:21)

Sixth Sunday after Epiphany

Jesus Heals a Great Multitude

Luke 6:17 He came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea, Jerusalem, and the coast of Tyre and Sidon.
Luke 6:18 They had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured.
Luke 6:19 And all in the crowd were trying to touch him, for power came out from him and healed all of them.

The Beatitudes

Luke 6:20 Then he looked up at his disciples and said: "Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God."
Luke 6:21 "Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled. "Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh."
Luke 6:22 "Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you on account of the Son of Man."
Luke 6:23 Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven; for that is what their ancestors did to the prophets.
"

Jesus Pronounces Woes

Luke 6:24 "But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation."
Luke 6:25 "Woe to you who are full now, for you will be hungry." "Woe to you who are laughing now, for you will mourn and weep."
Luke 6:26 "Woe to you when all speak well of you, for that is what their ancestors did to the false prophets."

NSRV & Believer's Study Bible (BSB) Notes

[Luke 6:20] The Sermon on the Plain in Luke is at some points similar to the Sermon on the Mount in Matt. 5-7. It is probable that the two sermons are based on the same occasion, Luke having presented an abbreviated account. Both begin with Beatitudes, but Luke has only four, each accompanied by a woe. Luke's sermon is about one-third as long as Matthew's. Some of the material in Luke is found elsewhere in Matthew, and much in Matthew's sermon is found elsewhere in Luke. Verses 24-26 are exclusive to Luke. The sermon is a description of the life of the new people of God (cf. Matt. 5:1, note: "Gennesaret" is another name for the Sea of Galilee).
