“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst because they are sticking to their diet”

"Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled” is from the New Testament, Matthew 5:6. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst, for they are sticking to their diet” is a modern jocular version that has been cited in print since at least 2000.

Blessed are those....
Johnnie Donley has challenged our Bible Study group to memorize scripture. Garrett said that I should try to memorize Jesus’s Sermon On The Mount, so I have been trying. Matthew 5:6 says “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” Today I was reading “The Orange Peel Gazette” and it said “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst, for they are sticking to their diet.”
