The 7 Beatitudes in Revelation

We all know the Beatitudes in Matthew 5, there are 7 more in Revelation;

1:3 - Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.

14:13 - Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.

16:15 - Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.

19:9 - Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!

20:6 - Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

22:7 - Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.

22:14 - Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.
