“Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.”
King James Version (KJV)
5:11 Revile - When present: say all evil - When you are absent.
Mt 5:11 Blessed are ye, when [men] shall revile you. This is a personal application of what has just preceded. Some of those who listened were reviled by the Jews, and persecuted unto death. For my sake. In Mt 5:10 it is said "for righteousness' sake". The two expressions mean the same.
