This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading some time ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Matthew 5:10.  Here is my translation:

“μακάριοι οἱ δεδιωγμένοι ἕνεκεν δικαιοσύνης,
Blessed are those who are persecuted on account of righteousness 

ὅτι αὐτῶν ἐστιν ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν. ”
