Der Evangeliman

Language: German (Deutsch)

Selig sind, die Verfolgung leiden,
um der Gerechtigkeit willen, denn ihrer ist das Himmelreich.
Selig seid ihr, wenn euch die Menschen schmähn und verfolgen,
und alles Böse mit Unrecht wider euch reden um meinetwillen.
Freuet euch und frohlocket, denn euer Lohn ist groß im Himmel.
Selig sind,  die Verfolgung leiden ...
Lasset die Kleinen zu mir kommen!
Ich will euch das Wort Gottes lehren.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
