Matthew 5:4

Context

5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. 1 

Matthew 5:6

Context

5:6 “Blessed are those who hunger 2  and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.

1 sn The promise they will be comforted is the first of several “reversals” noted in these promises. The beatitudes and the reversals that accompany them serve in the sermon as an invitation to enter into God’s care, because one can know God cares for those who turn to him.

2 sn Those who hunger are people like the poor Jesus has already mentioned. The term has OT roots both in conjunction with the poor (Isa 32:6-7; 58:6-7, 9-10; Ezek 18:7, 16) or by itself (Ps 37:16-19; 107:9).
