Matthew 5 gives us the first account of Jesus preaching his mission. In the “Sermon on the mount”. It is as Jesus is like Moses giving the way of Love. We are not prepared for the list of those who are Congratulated/Blessed/declared/happy as the different translations describe. Try reading them to discover the wisdom in these contrasts and ask yourself whom you would “congratulate”.
The Canticle of Simeon

Which you have prepared for all nations
The light to enlighten the Gentiles
And give glory to Israel your people
