“Blessed are those who mourn, because they will be comforted. Bible see other translations

“Blessed are those who mourn, because they will be comforted.” This truth was revealed in the Old Testament in verses such as Isaiah 61:3, and it is not primarily referring to people being comforted in this life. As this verse promises, no matter how sad and difficult a person’s life is here on earth, and even if they die without experiencing true comfort, the promise will be fulfilled and they will be comforted in the next life.
