The 8 Beatitudes

I consider the above 12 truths as the silver rules when contrasted with the eight beatitudes (as preached by Jesus in his Sermon on the Mount.)

Matthew 5:3–10
³Blessed are the poor in spirit,
 for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
⁴Blessed are those who mourn,
 for they will be comforted.
⁵Blessed are the meek,
 for they will inherit the earth.
⁶Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
 for they will be filled.
⁷Blessed are the merciful,
 for they will be shown mercy.
⁸Blessed are pure in heart,
 for they will see God.
⁹Blessed are the peacemakers,
 for they will be called children of God.
¹⁰Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
 for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
