Israel Things to Do: 748 reviews and 1,250 photos


This is the Mount of Beatitudes. This is the traditional site where Jesus uttered the immortal words of the Beatitudes and the most wonderful principles of the Blessed Life.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that morn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed or the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are they that have been persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. MAT 5:3-10
