In Luke 6: 20 you find only "poor". The Hebrew word 'anaw, probably the
origin of PTWCOS, has different meanings: poor in money and poor (humble) in
I think Matthew or his translator wanted to be precise and added "TWi
PNEUMATI" in order to exclude the meaning poor (in money).
Isaiah 61: 1, the first verse of a passage with similar thoughts as Mt 5:
3ff. the plural of 'anaw can be found.

I have always wanted to know who the 'poor in spirit' (Matt 5:3) really
were. So I ask you if there is any chance that 'PTWCOS TW PNEUMATI' and
'KRATAIOW PNEUAMATI' (Luk 1:80) might somehow be antonyms?
A happy new year to you all!
