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.

    We aren 't happy in persecution itself but we are happy when we are being persecuted for the sake of Jesus. The personal satisfaction of knowing we are doing what will make him happy results in us being happy and having his blessing.
